"I work intuitively. Each piece begins with a searching process. There is a constant moving of the paint waiting for a gesture, mark or passage that is workable. Once this happens additions, subtractions, scrapings, sanding, rubbing and other manipulations take place. It is in this physical process of doing and reacting to the inherent quality of the paint that the piece is revealed."
