Wet
2005
Acrylic on Arches Water Colour Paper

There's something fantastic that happens every time liquid paint hits wet paper, or when water is introduced to a canvas. When I commence a piece, I dive right in with nothing on my mind, save for some sensibility toward colour and space. The rest is serendipitous and intuitive. The creative force within takes over and allows for absolute freedom of expression.

We are not meant to understand all things. It doesn't really matter if things make sense. Paintings don't have to involve logic. There lies the magic. Simply letting them become what they may, is one of the greatest resources. There is no shortage of ideas when you are open to possibility. It's as if I have been reduced to essence. When I am at one with the medium, the most gratifying happenstance is the end result. The painting tells me when it is done. Not me.

My art is about energy and emotion enmeshed with organic form. It is about departure and rekindling of the Spirit, in both its mysteries and familiarities.
