I work from the studio each day, I paint, I draw, I print, I make.
I work on multiple pieces at any one time, some are small, some are larger.
Starting points vary, depending upon the success of the previous day.
Mark making is paramount, serendipity plays its role, informing as to which direction any particular work follows.
Certain pieces will move closer towards completion, while others will be over painted allowing the process to start again.
I enjoy the pairing of a painterly mark with a hard graphic line, forever seeking to find an affinity between the two.
