DESCRIPTION

“In the studio, I surround myself with canvases of all sizes.  I put mounds of paint on my big glass palette, pick up a painting knife and create seemingly random, textured surfaces on the canvas.  The layers and layers of paint become the foundation for the painting’s background.  Next comes opaque color; under layers of paint “peek through”, suggesting something hidden and offering depth and visual interest.  The shapes inspire the subject; they always become the painting that they are supposed to become.  I paint what I love: adult beverages, the musical instruments of jazz, strong coffee.  I paint in a bold impressionistic style.   I love thick, juicy paint, loose shapes, the smell of the studio.  I paint because it fills me with a sense of wellbeing, of belonging, of total “be in the moment” consciousness.  I am never closer to myself than at those moments.”
