MOST INFLUENTIAL IN MY ARTWORK IS MY LOVE FOR COLOR. I ENJOY VIVID SATURATED COLORS AND APPROACH MY WORK WITH COLOR AS A PRIORITY. COLOR INSTANTLY GIVES ME DIRECTION IN WHICH TO TAKE MY WORK AS THE PAINTING PROGRESSES, AND I ALLOW IT TO LEAD ME THROUGH THE PROCESS.

I CONSTANTLY EXPERIMENT WITH NEW WAYS TO LAY COLOR DOWN, BUT OIL SEEMS TO SPEAK TO ME MOST. THE JUICY PIGMENT BRINGS ME GREAT JOY!

I AM ATTRACTED TO SUBJECT MATTER WHICH EMITS A SPIRIT OF ITS OWN; WHETHER IT BE NATURE, THE HUMAN FORM OR AN OBJECT. THIS SPIRIT BRINGS SUCH EXCITEMENT TO ITSELF AND IN TURN EXCITES ME TO WANT TO PAINT IT IN A WAY THAT SOMETIMES FEELS UNCONTROLLABLE. IT USUALLLY HITS ME AT SUCH A DEEP LEVEL THAT I BECOME OBSESSED ABOUT EACH PAINTING UNTIL IT IS COMPLETE. KIND OF LIKE READING A GREAT BOOK THAT IS HARD TO PUT DOWN. WHILE I AM WORKING ON A PARTICULAR PAINTING, I OFTEN DREAM ABOUT AND WAKE UP WITH DIRECTION ABOUT WHICH COLOR TO PUT DOWN NEXT.

AS LONG AS THIS URGE IS IN ME, I CAN NOT STOP PAINTING. SO FAR, IT HAS BEEN IN ME MY ENTIRE LIFE!
