I like to draw and paint in a variety of mediums.  Each medium allows me to express myself differently. The subject matter often dictates the choice of medium. What motivaes me is to capture the movement, gesture or attitude of form, be it the human figure, landscape or non- objective forms.
My approach is an emotional one.  I start with lines, then color and texture follows. The struggle ensues with a constant pull and push, and erase and redo until I find the right path. Mine is an ongoing journey where results are unpedictable and satisfying.
