Artist's Statement

 I like to work with energy and enthusiasm towards mostly expressive abstract and semi abstract works.  I paint freely, sometimes with a theme in mind, or often without any preconceived ideas, letting my imagination flow through my hand to the paint onto the support. Using palette knives and plenty of paint on linen and canvas I like my work to be immediate and full of movement.  Some of my paintings, especially the flora, are more stylized than abstracted; it’s just the way I see the images coming through. Less obvious images have titles that may suggest something familiar but I really like to think that you, the viewers, see something that is special to you. My greatest compliment was that my painting ‘continued to mesmerize’.
