I am an abstract painter who uses oil, oil sticks, pastels, watercolor and gouache depending on my mood. I paint on canvas, panels or paper. Color is always the starting point for me, and at my most successful I allow the work at hand to tell me what it wants.
My visceral response to all that I see, hear, taste and the memory of those experiences infuse my work in unpredictable ways. As a former writer, I often think of my paintings as poems in paint instead of words.
