My paintings are an ongoing process of story. The short fiction I’ve written informs each painting as I transfer phrases and sentences onto blank canvas to begin the flow of shape and line, texture and color.

Found material becomes metaphor. Random marks are uncalculated but not accidental. Desire–to translate in a different form the hidden meanings and feelings associated with language—is a constant theme. To understand what is left unsaid is the horizon. The interplay between two of the most fundamental forms of communication is the muse.
