My work is a visual response to what I see. I work across media boundaries, delving into sculpture, installation and drawing, but painting is most often my medium of choice. If something catches my eye or intrigues me, I want to recreate it. Sometimes I will look at something and imagine myself painting it, then I take a photo and bring it back into the studio for consideration. I often work from images I take, though occasionally I will work from found photos or photos snapped by others. As I look at the world, everything I see is broken down into value, color, line and form. Interiors, landscapes, figures and still life: every genre is fair game.
