Artist Statement:
I never no what to title my paintings until they are completely finished, because I'm always working intuitively. When I finished the painting, I put it against the wall and stood back to look at it. Then all of a sudden what emerged was this figure putting on their new spring coat. As a Contemporary Urban Abstract Painter, I'm captivated with texture, line, color, design and shape that are the aesthetics of the urban environment. When I'm out exploring and find old decayed building facades, pipes, a freeway intersection or a decrepit fence, this inspires me. I am always exploring and experimenting with new materials and textures extending its' possibilities on several different surfaces, to make things up and take outrageous creative risks. Intuitive painting teaches us that there is a holy wisdom in allowing ourselves to be led and guided by whatever shows up on the paper or canvas in front of us. To let go of the common conceptions we know and open fully to the unknown.
