Artist Statement

I make art because I enjoy the process of making art. Each painting will take on a life of its own as I push, pull, drag and layer paint on the canvas. My work is grounded in abstracted landscapes….my interpretations of the Oklahoma landscape….the land, water, sun and sky. I will often start a painting with a couple of heavy black lines and out of this will emerge an organic explosion of color, texture and form. The artist that has most inspired me is Hans Hoffman. In particular his push-pull theory relative to the juxtaposition of warm and cold colors is of great interest to me.

Artist Bio

I started painting in 1999, at the age of 33. I have no formal training. I paint what I see in my mind and I paint what I feel in my heart. My work is very improvisational and spontaneous.
