My aim is to include all possibilities of my image-making within the parameters of painting.


Here's the paradoxical line on which I hover: exposure of secrets with a satiric playfulness, exploring the pathetic and comic with an eye to beauty.


I project from notebook drawings but also work instinctively on the painting so that each layer is a reaction to the last one. The move from grisailles to strong, vibrant color in the last few years came from my fascination with the hues of flowers. Aspects of nature, human, animal and plant have been a consistent reason for my visual exploration.
