I am a painter through and through; my work, for a long time, has been focused exclusively on abstract painting contained within the edges of a frame. Oddly enough, limiting my possibilities through palette, paint, and scale frees me to try anything, while concentrating closely on building one exclusive space at a time. I am compelled by the strata and history of the spaces I make with paint; I remove, stack, layer, dig, and remove again to discover unknown places and reveal new sites. My discoveries keep me painting, and I hope that sharing these discoveries through painting keeps the world looking fresh and fun.
