My practice of painting is my attempt to "color between" the lines/contours of language and image. My work lies somewhere between process and intuition. I try to create an appealing, engaging experience due to a variation in expectations. The satisfaction within the work is based on the viewer seeing something unexpected- whether spatial relationships, Idiosyncratic shapes, or color interactions. Guides within the process include Joan Mitchell, Joseph Albers, Charilne von Heyl, and Phillip Taafe. The marks have a playful musical quality and vary in pressure, and direction. These lyrical lines range from fluid to clumsy and become equal in a way that makes them unable to be temporarily separated.
