“My art is an amalgamation of work and life over recent years. The work itself reflects inspiration and innovation from an enthusiastic attitude I walk with through my life. The work utilizes a process both intellectual and technical moving from literal representation toward abstraction. Usually texture serves as the foundation for a painting or series. Within this foundation I begin to feel a focal point from which abstracted image and form emerges. The paintings are created slowly, built up over weeks texture upon texture, evolving into multi-colored, multi-layered and muti-dimensional works. The texture begins with the feelings I am experiencing at that moment. Then I fill the canvas with color implied by my emotions. I apply the paint with brushes, sticks, cloth or my hands, painting, sanding, scratching, scraping splattering and spraying until the painting is born.
What is abstract art? For me it is the expression of ideas, emotion, time and space which are born in the heart and mind of the artist rather than the physical world, then through the hands of the artist given birth into the physical world.”
