My work develops from the physical process of painting. Compositions are
not planned or created, but found; they emerge somewhere along the way.
To me ,what matters, is the act of painting itself. Having no concept in mind frees me from rules, elements of style and formal techniques. Usually I start a new canvas with gestural mark making or shapes. Using brushes, palette knifes and rags the oil paint is applied thickly, building layers.
One mark here leads to another over there. I work on more than one piece and so a conversation between the them begins. What I do on one canvas has an influence on the other and vice versa. A unique aspect of my painting process is the fact that I have trained myself only to use my left hand although I’m right handed. I’m using the left side right brain connection which is all about imagination and not controlling anything. My artwork is a way to express what I cannot say with words.
