I believe my paintings through color, shape and texture reflect the energy I put into my creative process. I have been inspired by the pure colors, distortions and boldness of the Fauves, as well as the impulsive & gestural interpretations of the Abstract Expressionists. I apply the paint directly with my hands as I don’t like having anything between me and the canvas. I like the feel of the paint as I move it around. I like my work to look spontaneous but organized; gestural but not chaotic.
