Artist statement

I am an abstract painter living in the greater Boston area. . My paintings are about the spontaneity of automatic drawing combined with the more cerebral act of editing. I try to let the materials have their own voice and react to what is presented to me, after an initial burst of unfiltered mark making. In this way I have a spirited conversation with each work until clarity and balance are achieved. In some ways, my work reflects the complexities and rhythms of nature and everyday life and how chaos can unexpectedly veer toward beauty.
