My work is about making the imaginary real. Putting ideas down on paper or canvas is like giving birth to a creature never seen before. I play with perspective and light and add personal archetypes. The mixture of oil and wax creates body and texture to my paint. I use palette knives to layer the paint so I can incise lines and layer color. I love the accidental quality that this layering produces. My images wrap around the sides of the painting to underscore the physical reality of each piece which plays off the illusion set up by the perspectives and light emanating from mysterious sources. My work is inclusive. I would like to paint anything and everything I think of and have all of it living together harmoniously in one place.
