Artist Statement

My paintings are all about storytelling.  I begin with a sketch or photograph of a figure, a tree, or something that interests me.  I paint the outline of that sketch and then I throw the sketch aside.


I begin to brush paint on the canvas and the painting evolves as I create a story about the scene.  Both the story and the composition evolve at the same time.

As I paint layer upon layer the story deepens inside each layer of paint.  I do not always know the outcome of the finished painting when I take the first brush stroke.

I love the mystery of the story evolving on the canvas!
