I find beauty in weathered surfaces that show a history of human touch and the evidence of time passed. Using acrylic paint, ink jet printouts, and sometimes stencils and stamps, I look for surprising results while experimenting with technique and color combinations. Little pieces of thought find their way into the picture through symbols and typography. Most of my paintings are about memories, long ago and recent, and they all tell a story.
I often rethink my painting in the middle of the process and recreate entire sections. Sometimes I start completely over an old painting of mine that I never liked, allowing textures from the hidden layers to become part of the composition. When I’m happy with the finished piece it feels like the company of a friend who has seen me through troubled times.
