I approach the canvas like I do life for the most part: with an osmotic process. Osmosis is the movement of a solvent through a semipermeable membrane. I begin by thrashing bright and bold colors onto the canvas with great fervor and raw emotional movement and then let the image cull naturally through the abstract textures. It’s not a perfect process. I do not plan the final image and so the results widely vary but they always find their way to the surface.
The inspiration behind my works manifest from daily life energy and experiences. I gravitate toward ornithology, insects, floral and figurative subjects. I am a self-taught artist and as such, I have moved through a myriad of styles and subjects with the majority of my works falling loosely into the expressionism category. My recent works tend toward a more realistic approach which requires a greater amount of patience rendering the practice a complete meditative cycle. I start with chaos and end with calm.
