Sausalito, CA

My paintings are pictures of the way I experience the world. I wake up each day with a head full of pictures. I see colors all around me, hues of every sort. Some people have exceptional hearing, catching all sounds around them. I catch color. I have traveled the world over, wanting to see everything I can. After over six years of steady travel, the images have all merged and are now starting to emerge. In my latest work they are swirled in my emotions and splayed across the canvas. Many of the canvases are done with only my hands, no brushes. I love the feel of moving the pigment with my fingers, smudging a bold mark in with the palm of my hand, dabbling with the edge of my pinky those smallest of details. I know it is time to stop for the day when I start to realize where i am and what I am doing. I don't work by completing objects in the composition, I listen to the color and the balance and try to follow the dance. “Painting seems like some kind of peculiar miracle that I need to have again and again.” ~Phillip Guston
