There is an openness that is needed in art. We live in a chaotic world where I feel I should paint simple and direct avoiding the
overworked story. Color for me is the catalyst for all my work as there is no other way that I see the world as it is a powerful
element of expression and design. I paint using oil and coldwax for its luminosity and the ability to dig back into the layers
of paint to show the history of the layers.
