I do not work from sketches, photos or reference points. My work is born of an image in the mind, an intention, a concept. I use the act of painting to propel the work. The paint is applied by varying means and utensils in response
to the surfaces I am working with. Spontaneous marks and gestures define the image – and the work emerges as a fusion of idea and action.
My compositions incorporate distillations of visual phenomena – the city, structures, patterns of trees
and nature – however I do not seek to represent specific subjects. I am responding to the energies, forces and indefinite aspects of an active matrix. I believe there is something of the alchemist in the painter.
