Artist Bio:


Artist Statement:

My paintings feature texture, light or heavy; marks of all kinds; deep colors; patterned backgrounds; drips and various mediums. They convey energy, lyrical or frenetic. They convey mood, serious or lighthearted. I find the painting process exhilarating. I feel successful when I believe the last one is my best one.
While a few are difficult to plan and execute & others come easily, I usually think “Wow, that was fun!” when I finish.   I am a solitary painter and am not comfortable being watched, but when finished and happy with a piece, I am very interested in the viewer’s reaction and comments.  Sometimes what they see or feel about it greatly surprises and intrigues me.  I try to paint weekly, if not daily, and produced 64 in 2015.
