Recent Work

In my work I continue to explore the interplay of abstraction and figuration, painting and drawing, shape and line.

Each piece begins with an earlier painting of mine, with a history. I use the old piece as ground for the new piece. I work from a live model and memory, merging what I see in front of me with what is on the paper. Initially there is chaos, but as I work the elements interact and a composition evolves. I am drawn to ambiguity, figures overlapping, lines defining and not defining, edges blurred. It is in this ambiguity where the viewer can find their own meanings.
