I combine a disciplined formal painting process with the raw spontaneity of chance, outcome, and intuition. I approach each piece with an understanding of a physical image and allow internal forces of perception and chance to collide. Each painting experience is an adventure woven by experiment and intent. The objective is to emphasize the possibility of paint medium with gritty, tactile quality. I leave traces of the application and text in each piece to energize the painted form. My goal is to momentarily harness logic, instinct, and guesswork.
