I am interested in how color shifts in a given light condition and how those changes move through and structure a painting.
Gathering and responding to visual information, to the sensual world, keeps me learning, and itching to paint. I like the challenge of natural light, its dynamic quality.

We’ve learned that most of what constitutes a person is not so much human molecules, but water and bacteria, not so different from the surrounding air, or from the next person.  Similarly, the constitution of a  painting is not about separate objects and their locations, but about the pieces of color these things and spaces divide into, and that, simultaneously, unify them.  This matrix informs my paintings.
