Biography

There is rarely any forward planning, materials and choices are made randomly, colors and mediums are selected in accordance with the needs of what transpires at the moment. At times , when I run out of materials, I start creating alternative mediums, dilute pigments, add thinners or modeling paste and come up with new means depending on my state of being. It becomes a total alchemy. The outcome for the most part is greatly satisfying and unexpected. My mind keeps rushing, thus reassuring me that everything goes.

Internal cravings change without previous warnings. Chance plays the most significant role. What appeals to me is the moment’s uniqueness and fleeting nature whereby everything else ceases to exist. The process of painting is a phenomenally mysterious practice.
