I never saw this coming. 


When I began painting, I was simply getting around to trying something that I had always wanted to try. Looking back, I think the initial attraction was color and energy.


At some point while learning to paint, I realized just how joyful it felt to create. 


There is an unexpected joy when a painting is complete. Regardless of how much preparation or planning goes into a painting, it always has its own ideas on who it is. When it presents itself to you it’s a bright little miracle. 


Sometimes my work begins completely abstract but then turns somewhat representational. Other times, it begins representational and turns abstract.


Regardless, it tends to present itself when I am completely lost in the work - relying solely on intuition and feeling.
