Artist's Statement

My most recent works are thickly painted abstractions in vibrant colors that incorporate found objects, waste materials, wood, scrap metal, and repurposed animal fur. My pieces are in conversation with Sienese and early Renaissance paintings by Giotto, Sassetta, and Fra Angelico; some confront more contemporary works.
Each piece is titled with a textual fragment from a story that relates to the narrative presented in my work. Titles are taken from literature by a range of great authors such as James Salter, Anton Chekhov, Nikolai Gogol, Oscar Wilde, Hunter Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, Ernest Hemmingway, Henry Miller, Anais Nin, and others.
