Artist Statement

My paintings are non-representational. There may seem to be identifiable subjects within a color field, but they are closer to apparitions than to real objects or landscapes. My imagery floats between possibilities as it emerges and then disappears. I use this ambiguity to explore how meaning can be found where it was not intended.

When I paint, I try to balance my control of the medium with an allowance for the accidental. Shifts of the image occur during the painting process and become part of the finished piece. The tension between random acts and carefully planned decisions is the subtext of the work.
