Beneath the surface of my paintings lies a skirmish.
A battle between order, and exuberant chaos; between good manners, and the jubilant naughtiness of my subconscious.
I rarely plan my work with in detail.
Rather, I attack the painting surface quickly, often wildly, and then calmly work hard to collect the jarring elements into one aesthetic package.
I like things to be pretty in the end, but never too perfect. “Mistakes” are charming,
I find the art of story telling to be as important as a plot with a surprise climax.
Therefor, My artwork shares the story of its creation with viewers. I leave little windows in time, showing earlier layers and earlier intentions.
