Biography

 

 

I don't often set out to produce work of a specific genre. I fluctuate from representational work to abstract.  Most of my work is done intuitively with  just basic sketches and color blocks to give me a starting point. My work tends to morph as I add and subtract elements in my design process.

I am influenced by the color and textures around me. I am endlessly fascinated with stones, tree bark, grates, rust, peeling paint and the nuances of color and the surfaces of these objects. My photographic images are of these forms and used for future reference.

Though my art does not have a consistent theme, it does have a definite color bias. I am more aware of my color preferences and track those combinations that work for the emotions I want to portray.
