Painting and creating images is both an inward and outward journey for me. My abstract and representational images are inspired by a variety of sources and processes. I start a painting with complete openness. Sometimes I have a specific plan involving conventional composition and traditional methods. At other times, my paintings develop somewhat on their own. I trust how a composition will unfold and where it will take me. Freedom to create with unlimited possibilities and the bonus element of discovery are part of my creative process.
