You are free to interpret my work in any way you find meaningful. I paint hoping to produce images I haven’t seen before, but also to engage my eye, imagination, and emotions. I rarely start painting with an agenda. Any sort of meaning usually comes to me after I’ve completed the design to my satisfaction. When I title a piece, I try to hint at what the painting reminds me of, or what sort of feeling it evokes in me. However, when you look at my work, I’m just as interested in what meanings or associations you might draw from the experience. Abstract art is mysterious and strange to most people, including myself. I believe there is still potential for a painting to spark meaningful discussion between people, to deepen our sense of community, to start a conversation. A painting can illuminate how differently each of us sees the world around us, or conversely, how much we have in common.
