The cathartic act of improvisation plays a central role in my creative process, acting as a release valve for my complex responses to life experience. The refuge I find in expressing the immediacy of the moment provides a safe space for me to nurture my confidence. The energy and excitement of taking artistic risks, applying the paint and media spontaneously, allows for free exploration of the eternal present.
I express the intensity of my feelings primarily through color and secondarily through stroke. By applying contrasting colors with vigorous strokes and various images of reconfigured media, I strive to cultivate a visual scape that electrically charges the space and viewer experience. It is very important to me that my art generate a continual dialogue with the audience. I always tell people that I want my work to “live” on their walls, meaning that every time a person repeatedly engages with my art they see and feel something new. I want them to connect with and sense the sparks of my creative process.
