Painting for me involves an incredible amount of building and piecing together. An intuitive, spontaneous process beginning with blazingly bright and optimistic color. Laying down layers each comprised of visual cues to places in my memories. Thick paint and varying strokes are laid down across the surface, subtracted and then boldly added again. This process creates a sense of immediacy and freshness. I am interested in how color and texture can be used to create depth of space and movement, and how I can translate it to the canvas. Combining these elements creates a framework to which I build upon.
