I start out indulging in a free flow of lines and color until I find a form that starts telling me a story or reflecting the moment. That is what usually opens the door to a subject that captures my attention.
I then focus on the refinements of the image.
That is how it works for me. There is a dialogue that directs me. I call it my first language.
This dialogue has shaped and reshaped itself as I have grown with it for decades. I have worked with a number of real materials. But when I learned how limitless the digital painting could be, I found a freedom and immediacy that I could thoroughly enjoy. My medium is ever changing and so are the possibilities.
This site is all about my abstract figurative work done mostly on a tablet using a drawing app. I also work on a desktop when I’m working in a hyper-real style devoted to florals. That is where I found my organic shapes alive in nature. Hyper-real Floral paintings
