Having a background in architecture, I have always been interested in the relationship between structural grids contrasted against random open spaces. This has worked its way into my paintings by the use of flowing paint and grids. The grid has become an organizational tool for composing smaller individual painted pieces into a larger image. Most of my paintings use a stamping technique to apply the paint while the work is on a flat surface. The flat surface allows for the mixture of bleeding colors and shapes to produce a spontaneous outcome. The painting process becomes unconscious and each piece becomes an experiment in itself. The finished result may need added work of layering color to fill in unpainted areas or to enhance the depth of field. The results can represent different viewer interpretations from motion to atmospheric backgrounds to aerial views. My inspiration comes from music, nature, and the environment.
