Artist Statement

Art is a building process, one painting pointing the way to another – one breakthrough causing an explosion of creative action. This whole process is a playful energetic explosion of color, line, brushstroke, value, intensity which evolves from my love of paint and making “marks” on a surface. My “marks” have explored horizons, land, water, skies, images as the “hook” to enter the canvas. Each painting becomes a time of joy and frustration, a battleground of highs and lows, and always attempting to learn more about the process, always pushing the borders. In the end there is always the question – Is this a painting?
