Memphis, TN

Works in
New York, NY


abstract, non-objective painting, reductive painting



The desire to capture space, time, emotion and experience cannot be fully realized on canvas. As a result my works are suggestive rather than representational.

Through my painting process I create a unique pictorial vocabulary--- using color to impart a strong emotional charge.

The way in which the paintings are made varies considerably from piece to piece. Some are thinly painted while others are more worked.

There is a suggestion throughout of flux and a strong sense of arriving at an image rather than the creation of a fixed, specific representation.
