The challenge of making a compelling image from tubes of color has always called me. I love every single mark that can be made with paint: juicy impasto, layers, drips, and gauzy washes. I generally work in the studio from life, sketches, photos and memory, always trying to balance intention with surprise.

 

Curiosity and a commitment to finding my painting voice keep me returning to the easel every day, sometimes with assurance and other times on my knees. I can't imagine more satisfying work.
