"My paintings are deeply entrenched in the abstract expressionist tradition.
My quest is to use spontaneous gesture as a way of accessing intuitive truths about the nature of our world and ourselves. I consider my work to be organic and inspired principally by the natural elements—the feel and look of a rough stone, the rhythm and cadence of music, the play of sun through the trees, the fluidity and movement of water.
I normally work in series exploring these themes, and groups often differ dramatically in tone and style. In all cases, however, I prefer that the paintings speak for themselves, and that the viewer take away from the painting what he or she will—therein lies the power of abstraction."
