Using a highly personal approach to gestural abstraction, my work engages with both the natural environment and historical artifacts in a textural language that implies elements of both, as channeled through personal experience and the painting process itself.

With sgraffito, palette knives and other impasto-developing approaches and tools, the complex surfaces thus created function analogically, not as depictions of their sources but as responses to them, working with both the initial inspiration and the unplanned.

The imagery in my work replicates the elemental structures, forms and colours I see around me, in passages filled with frenetic activity as well as areas of calm.  In every instance, I encourage the viewer to encounter the work from their own perspective, in order to allow for variations in interpretation.
