My paintings are not pre conceived other than choosing the palette of colors I will use for a canvas. When I begin, I don’t start here and end there. I start with a stroke and I let the paint tell me where I am going.
As the paint begins to flow fluidly from edge to edge, corner to corner, and top to bottom of the canvas, I paint what I am feeling, not what I am immediately seeing. I am continuously drawn in and out of the canvas, until an image begins to appear and develop into a finished painting.
Some have said my paintings are very ethereal. Poetic imagination, unique, loose, and rich in a heavenly use of colors that drip and flow. Viewers, like myself, are drawn in and out of the painting, until they follow their own imagination of what they feel and see.
In 1980, I moved from Sun Valley to NYC where I have a painting studio in Soho. I spend my summers in Sun Valley, Idaho, where I have a painting studio in Ketchum, Idaho.
