Bio

My paintings represent a personal language created through the use of color, texture, composi-tion and action. By pushing, scraping, dripping, using different tools and materials and throw-ing paint, i create a visual history of my own response to these complex elements. It is an active process intermingling various elements and materials into one final composition. I love to go "over the edge" to explore new possibility’s and expressions, to surprise myself and the viewer.
As I paint I always seek the balance between negative/positive, light/dark, thin/thick. I use great sweeping gestures against calm breathing spaces. The splatter, gesture, and stroke is some-times planned and sometimes a result of the intuitive process when I work and the outcome is how it will affect the final result of the painting. I find the harmony of contradictory visual ideas, both beautiful and exciting. For me the intuitive painting process has become a visual equivalent of meditation. I let the paint act as my medium. The titles have been invented as a part of this process and are also a part of the final result.
