As an artist, I continually find myself inspired by the abstract expressionist painters of San Francisco. The textures and colors of their works are indicative of the post WWII era and their techniques strongly reinforce my fluid tendencies. Furthermore, I find a gratifying meditation in the act of expressing an essence or idea through a stroke of paint. I know a piece is complete when I have a sense of fulfillment in my being. Just as the world around us is ever-changing, my practice continues to evolve with each new piece I create.
