My work is inspired by the natural and organic formations, surface patterns and textures found all around us. I create my abstract paintings while combining oil paint with cold wax. The process of painting is my focus, not trying to make a specific statement, so I often begin in one place and end up in another with no idea of how I got there or how to “do it again”.
