I often work in layers so erasures and scrapings are a part of my process as the painting progresses in an intuitive manner. My work is not precious, and it certainly isn’t about finding perfection. Instead, I’m most interested in the creative process and artistic expression. I draw inspiration from my daily life, nature, found objects, movies, music, art and literature. Sometimes my work comes from salvaging what remains of a memory or dream, or from capturing fragments of a story, or more often from being quiet and allowing impressions to emerge in the moment. Painting is an ongoing engagement with images and ideas that are sometimes difficult to fully understand. Being an artist means that I carve out time and energy in order to explore and to create something from the puzzle pieces. Creative expression is a personal process, an inner dialogue — it is about making choices, taking some risk, exploring materials and trusting your hand.
