The Paintings


My paintings are composed using an intuitive process of layering and  excavating. I arrange vivid hues alongside subtle tones, or rich and  opaque passages with translucent glazes.  These elements overlap,  intertwine, and accentuate each other.


As the piece evolves I grind into the layers with a power sander,  revealing new textures, early brushstrokes and stunning color  “conversations”, which tell the painting’s story of it’s making.


Every painting orchestrates the elements of imagery- hue, contrast,  space, texture, and contour into an immersive optical experience in the  final piece.
