The development of my painting begins with scribbles and scrawls in search of formal and spatial effects. By foregoing representation, I am free to express myself with the unrestricted use of form, adopting intentional awkwardness and deliberate crude gestures. My paintings are not illustrations, nor pictures of figures or objects. I look for shapes that are not in the normal realm of what is seen in life, however, I paint out of my own unconscious and figures are bound to emerge. I am concerned with the interaction of line, color and shape. To create these interactions, I put image on top of image; continually painting out all that does not work, usually leaving traces of previous attempts in the final painting.
The viewer should visualize something new: something of which he or she was previously unaware. Rather than painting an object, the painting itself is the product.
