I’m a self-taught artist and have been drawing and painting for four decades. I’m interested in the process that creates a painting. Although it involves imagination, this process is affected by chance, so that when I begin a picture I have only a half-formed image of what the finished painting might look like. The completed piece only slightly resembles the image that I had in mind when I began it. I think of this as improvisation. Over the years that I’ve been painting, I’ve learned to trust the brush and the materials – to let them take the lead – and not to think too much about how it will end up . . . until I get to that end.

This is part of what makes painting interesting for me.

RAW AND INTUITIVE

I am a compulsive artist…I paint everyday because I have to!

My images are raw and intuitive. Colors harmonize in unexpected ways and exuberance often collides with angst.

Faces predominate my work, many in frontal gazes that meets the viewer head -on; faces as maps that reveal places we’ve been…or may be going.

In the words of Zorba the Greek—

I embrace everything…the full catastrophe, speaking to the human condition of joy and triumph, suffering and celebration.
