Although I have had a lifelong interest in art, I only started to paint in 2008. I am self-taught. My work is influenced by traditional Abstract Expressionism and Neo-expressionism. I work primarily in oils but frequently in other media. I agree with the critic who once said that a painting does not have to be "about" anything other than the process of its own creation. I am also inspired by a quote from Jean-Michel Basquiat: “I start a picture and I finish it. I don’t think about art while I work. I try to think about life.” I never begin with a plan or image in mind. I simply start applying paint to a canvas until something interesting happens. Then that “something” suggests the next thing, and the next, and so on. At some point I may start making marks on it. If I add text, it may just be a word or phrase I hear from music or TV or just something that pops into my head. I never know what the finished product will be until it is finished.
