Artist Statement
My work is very much about process. The process is one of action/reaction. My approach is very intuitive; there are no sketches to work from, little predetermined choice of color.

Born of spontaneity, the work is a reflection of myself at the time of its creation. A deliberate sense of order and space is achieved through color interaction, repetitive elements, hand drawn grid lines, and loose geometric shapes. These elements provide entry points, and paths with which to enter and navigate the work.

The process begins with an initial application of paint and continues as I react to subsequent layers, it concludes when a final action no longer evokes reaction.
