The color and chaos of life calls to me. My drive to be immersed in color knows no bounds.
I paint primarily with pallet knife in oil paint. Pallet knife allows me to respond to textures with a gestural thickness. Painting impasto, thick and lush, contributes boldness and assertiveness to color. Using paint thinly, almost transparently with one color over another, gives an ethereal complexity and a depth to color. I intend for my paintings to move for the viewer; unexpected color and varied painting application techniques make the movement happen. A still life is never still and neither is life.
