My intent is to create worlds that I want to visit and most often they are not any specific place. They are familiar but unknown, mysterious, and often joyful.
I like to build these worlds on canvas, paper and board with layers of paint, collage, gels and carving, pastels, charcoal, and other interesting materials and techniques. I let the process guide me from place to place on the surface, allowing plenty of room for the unexpected. The end result, I hope, is a world that is intriguing at a glance and worthy of exploration when the viewer looks more closely.
