I am an artist.  I love to paint, draw and create, and I work in a multitude of realms.  A mix of media, processes and techniques push their way through, as you can see in my gallery of art.

Painting in abstract has drawn me to its very core.  The freedom of layering marks and color on canvas has given me a way to express the emotions of the moment, wherever that may lead.

Some of my paintings begin with a purpose. Others evolve through the layers, directing their own path.

Texture and shapes compete with contrast and color. And, I love to play and experiment; the mixture of media making experimenting fun.

My favorite surfaces are paper, canvas and birch board. Acrylic is my go-to guy; but ink, charcoal and watercolor like to sneak their way in. A blank canvas goes black, a cacophony of colors and shapes fight for purchase; and a painting emerges most often through negative space techniques.

My process of painting is very free-flowing and organic; pleasurable in its unfolding, expansive in the knowledge it reveals, and occasionally surprising in its emergence.

Welcome to my color world.
