I use acrylic paints, charcoal, debris from the studio floor and even the shirt off my back

to create my work. If it’s in the studio or around me, there is a good chance it will make

it's way onto one of my paintings. Usually I begin by staining a canvas or found fabric.

By working on a surface that is already colored and textured, I am able to make marks

in response to the energy that it evokes. The work reflects moments in time, flashes of

emotion. What is going on in my mind, my life and the world around me. I give the work

time to live the same way I give myself time to experience life. I am less interested in

the results of a work then the experience of painting itself.
