“For me, painting is about paint: color, texture, the joy of putting it on or scraping it off; I believe the results are best served by keen and repeated viewing. My painting is about surface primarily. Surface is feeling – it can be ambivalent. It gives the illusion of depth and reflection, of time and memory and complexity.

I prefer imagined sites rather than actual landscapes. I incorporate crossroads, paths taken or not taken, suggestions and intimations of the past and the future. Windows, portals, exits and entrances are subjects that inspire me. Materials that age, rust, decay and change are for me the elements of birth and survival. I have been greatly inspired by visits to both the Southwest and to South Africa, by the mysterious and changing landscapes, and the symbolism that permeates so much of their histories. I try to introduce elements that are hidden or apparent, that will encourage “reading” my paintings many times and constantly discovering something new. I find myself using different materials such as copper, lead or nails, materials from the earth (as is paint), which may also continually change over time, I especially like encaustic (beeswax), which in many ways is just the opposite of these other materials in terms of its durability and permanence, and its wonderful ability to be opaque or transparent.

Above all, I love the PROCESS of making a painting – revealing parts of myself that might be a mystery even to me. I love the smells, textures, endless decisions and accidents that come from the paint, the wax, the wood, the nails, and the copper and lead, that seem to be consistent with my purpose, my aesthetic. The making of art is a sensual endeavor, and the better if it speaks to the viewer – to me that is the greatest barometer of success.

Some of my “parents” are Richard Diebenkorn, Nathan Oliveira, Manuel Neri, Anthony Gormley, Elaine Anthony and Judith Streeter.”
