My approach is to create abstract art with a greater intensity, saturation and luster in colors not generally seen on canvas, in short, art with a pulse. I begin with a general vision, but, with every application of a variety of materials, I follow the flow, deciding whether to intercede with the movement of the colors on the canvas or let the painting evolve organically as the colors interact and settle. Depending on the outcome of these initial steps, I then employ layering methods that I have developed over the years, achieving a glass-like result with saturated color creating unique optical properties that combine both intricate detail at close range and great depth from a distance. Some canvases have as few as three layers and others as many as 30 layers, but all display rich colors and luminous hues. When my painting has come to life, I know it is complete. My collection is a compilation of diverse paintings, each unique in motif, style, content and palette.
