I think of my work as painting a feeling.
Using a palette knife allows me to create bold and highly textured strokes. Then a process of sculpting, staining, rubbing, scratching and removing gradually brings a new painting into focus, always moving further and further into abstraction.
I mix my own colors and paint in separate layers, allowing each to dry in between so that the colors stay crisp and clear.
Color, texture and the reflection of light are key elements of my work which is heavily influenced by observing my natural environment.
My first career as the VP/Creative Director of an Interior Textiles firm as well as time spent living and working in Paris has had a big influence on my second career as an artist. Now back in NYC after many years in Charleston SC.
