My abstract drawings and paintings are the visual record of exploration, criticism, trial and error, and discovery. The process is both determined and spontaneous; it includes critical reworking and accident as I look for something I haven’t seen before. There is little pre-planning so the characteristics of the media are in large part responsible for the “look” of each piece. Composing an arresting image with line, shapes and colors is my primary goal. In the process, thoughts and feelings are often associated with the forms thus influencing the direction and outcome of the work.
