Approaching a blank canvas without a vision, simply an internal drive to create is the process that I embrace in my paintings. I apply color intuitively, allowing each mark to inform the next. I work in layers, allowing areas to be hidden and others to be revealed. I look for forms, faces and figures in the placement of color and pattern that are created during this process and aim to define them, to pull them into existence. It is this interaction between intuition and imagination that inspires me to create paintings that range from abstract to surreal.
