My painting process is inspired by what I have seen during numerous travels in Asia,

(including traditional, contemporary, and commercial patterns and imagery),

combined with improvisation.

Embodied is my fascination with the romantic view of tropical regions and their beauty, the mystical practices and energies which occur in these places, and investigations into imaginative, inner, and real spaces.

 

I allow for an open ended-ness in the result of my paintings.  They are made in a spontaneous manner,

worked to compositionally resolve, but also to allow for unplanned results.

 

Appreciation for the unique mental spaces created by experimental composition and improvised music also informs my visual work.

I am curious and enjoy gathering and sharing what I find interesting with others,

and prefer to see my life’s creative output as manifestations made on a path.
