Artist Statement

After visiting the galleries of Santa Fe, New Mexico, I felt compelled to explore painting. I randomly chose paints, brushes, mediums and canvases and began experimenting. If a painting takes on an undesired path, I make a different choice and throw on a different color. Then, when and if the original colors poke through, it's a reminder of the path the painting had taken. Each painting has a life of it's own. Sometimes I have a sense of the direction I want to take the painting. With others, I follow the path the painting insists on taking.
