I use spray bottles, sticks, my fingers, gravity, and brushes to gradually build up multi-layered figurative and abstract pictures.
My most recent pieces are made with viscous oil paint applied with a pin-striping brush, usually in frenzies of long, obsessive, physical strokes.
My pictures relate to my own experiences with intimacy and isolation as well as my own observations of death and new life. They are rendered with minimal figurative detail, taking advantage of our human ability to divine faces, figures and patterns even in the most ambiguous shapes. The resulting paintings are tactile and visually accessible, evoking shape and light without denying the fluid materiality of the paint.
