"My work is very much about process. The process is one of action/reaction. My approach is intuitive; most of the time I work without sketches, and I make no attempts at literal representation.  I translate and abstract the contemporary experience of life into visual language that goes beyond words. I like the viewer to respond emotionally to the abstracted shapes, colors, and textures. The process begins with an initial application of paint and continues as I react to subsequent layers, it concludes when a final action no longer evokes reaction."
