General information
My paintings develop much the same as a personís character. I build layers using squeegees, acrylic paint, charcoal, gold leaf, mixed media and various acrylic mediums. I try to achieve a balance between what is defined and what is implied, I feel my most successful work is that which is spontaneous, recognizing the unexpected is crucial in achieving this. Through energetic manipulation the positive and negative space coalesce. I attempt to engage the viewer and allow them to bring their own experiences to the work by leaving areas of the painting ambiguously described. Using these techniques, translucency and gold leaf I try to express the subjectsí valued immersion in the space it occupies, the viewers interaction is a bonus.


Experience
Level of Experience: Very Experienced

My work has appeared on the cover Art Calendar, in various gallery publications, exhibited nationally and collected internationally. My recent work explores the figure.† I use shape, color, and gesture, to design and manipulate the space.† Experimenting with process, format and recognizing the unexpected is how I develop my visual comments.
