I have been most influenced by the work of the Abstract Expressionist painters of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, specifically the “monumental” large scale paintings of this genre. In all of my work a sense of the physical is very important. Brush in paint, paint on canvas or wood. The size of the work, the heavily layered paint and the almost sculptural quality of the 4” deep canvases, creates a vibrant visual experience. The goal is to change the air in the room.
