It has been noted that my paintings have a somewhat Asian feel. This is not a conscious decision but may be the result of my years of travel to Japan and a lifelong interest in Eastern philosophy. I am attracted to simplicity of form, asymmetry, and worn, weathered looking surfaces. Those Zen-like elements show up time and time again in my painting.
Over the years my work has evolved into a more abstract style, reducing images to bold, elemental shapes. In my most recent paintings I ad layers of oil pigment on top of acrylic textures to create sensual surfaces that are rich with depth and nuance.
