My work draws from countless influences that are conscious and in many ways subliminal.With every new painting ordrawing these influences manifest themselves with a personality all their own. I dont attempt to adhere to one style oranother because the artwork itself will take me down that road. I will often begin a painting with a loose map of an idea, only to be detoured to a totally different destination. I like using bright vibrant colors and avoid using mass tones when possible, preferring to mix and tube my own custom mixes. When someone views my work, I want themto retain a latent image that sticks with them. I want them to have an emotional as well as visual experience.
