A place, memory, feeling, song, moment…whatever the inspiration, it made its way to the canvas in the form of loose, free-flowing brushstrokes, marks and puddles of color. My paintings are created intuitively, without any preconceived ideas or planned outcomes for the finished piece. I usually start with a certain color palette, and as the layers develop, I let the colors, texture, marks and movement guide me. Layers upon layers are added and subtracted until the piece reaches a certain balance and “feels complete”. My hope is that each viewer interprets a story, an inspiration, as unique and spontaneous as what moved me to paint it.
