My painting is about engagement-- -oil and wax medium on panel, uniting to find the expressive nature of color, line, texture, shape, and the physical marks of each brushstroke. It is a painterly style varying in both technique and quality of expression depending on the moment and where the process takes the painting. Images appear and are destroyed.  Layer upon layer are subject to being erased, only to be honored again as the work finds new paths toward resolve. The history is preserved as it is built, uniting the process. There is considerable freedom of technique and execution with a particular emphasis on the expressive quality of the paint itself.
