My paintings reflect my love of movement and of nature. I'm a swimmer and in my younger years was a modern dancer. They're about happiness.
I switched from oils to working with acrylics recently because of the speed at which they dry. I'm able to keep a dialog with the painting going and keep working for long stretches of time.
I always have at least three paintings in progress because it allows me the freedom to try new ideas as they occur.
I think of my paintings as artifacts of a journey. Although I don't usually think directly about an activity, it's about the exuberance that I feel when swimming, biking, or dancing. Sometimes it's about my awe of nature.
