Biography

Working intuitively and allowing the process to dictate the outcome of each painting gives me access to a new view of nature. It is important for me to move beyond a purely visual description. I prefer to work closer to the way that primitive cultures do; I work with symbols of nature as a form of pictorial writing. This is my way of internalizing natural ideas and becoming a part of the natural order.

I work because I only have notions of things.
I build the things that I can’t say with words.
