Though I do sometimes work conceptually, in general I am a process-painter in the sense that my painting practice is largely intuitive, with a tension between my freedom to innovate and my listening in the moment to what is there. I embrace a tension between intentionally structured compositional elements and mark-making, and looser, more liberal gestures of line and color. Often it is this tension which gives my work its kinetic compositional character.
I am also interested in the dialogue between bold forms and colors, and exploring the hybridity of forms that can appear at once as figurative and abstract, organic and biological. My work as a whole is characterized by bold colors, organic shapes and figures that appear to be in active discourse.
