| I have developed a unique technique to express these ideas using
acrylic paints. I incise, scratch, rub, and work the surface, layering
colors to create a sense of age and the passage of time. Like sketching with a pen, each
mark in the surface will always be there, a step in the process, a mark in time. The
technique allows me to work quickly and spontaneously. I make few, if any, preparatory
sketches, instead allowing the images to flow onto the surface, to take on a life of their own,
to have an unpretentious grace, an ease, a certain comfort.
