I believe my work reflects the immediacy of my life.  Over the last forty years painting has become a way for me to journal.  Layers of paint give voice beyond utterance or written expression.

I am presently challenged and intrigued by non-objective expression.  Only the size of the surface, tools and the palette are considered ahead of time.  I give over to spontaneity and am thrilled when the expression begins to take shape.  If my intuition fails, I call upon imagination to fill in the blanks.  I rely on technical skills gained over time to hone the piece.

I have never doubted that the process demands I call upon my sense of adventure and my willingness to risk - "to just go for it and see what happens"!
