Contemporary Painting and Collage

The Spaces Below Us -


The Spaces Below Us, 50"x32", acrylic, graphite on canvas


I paint from an improvisational and guttural place. Inhabiting an attitude of allowing and not knowing, I activate the canvas with spontaneous marks. I respond with paint that alternately asserts and obliterates the space. I aspire to paint with the unfiltered expression and rawness of a child. This new work is featured in the Spring 2015 edition of Studio Visit magazine.


Join me and Katherine Aimone and Audrey Phillips for our workshop: " Doing the Work of Your Life: Moving Beyond Fear in Abstract Painting", August 3-6, 2015 in Thomaston, Maine. Sign up at under 'workshops'. 


I am interviewed along with several artists from the Southern Lights workshop at the Bascom Center for the Arts, Highland, NC. Click here to see it:
