My paintings explore the ambiguous line between the abstract and the literal, striving to capture the essence of, and the evocative feeling of a place or experience long before the images form to describe it. The work is a process of building up and tearing down, adding and then excavating, scraping and melting (encaustics), and pushing the image to the edge of loss, and then bringing it back again. My images are often filled with a moody, earthy, textural energy that has become my work’s signature.
