Artist's Statement

What happens when I paint, and what am I making?   I begin by making spontaneous marks with my hands and a variety of other painting tools.

This action allows images to emerge that never appear when working in preconceived ways.

I find the patterns, forms, or figures the paint suggests, are closely linked to my   most immediate experiences or they come from some subconscious realm of knowing that seems to be a   prior knowledge beyond the spoken word.

As I work, I watch, trying to recognize and develop imagery which reinforces the connections, and begins to reveal forces that I sense in nature and within myself.   I paint to explore these mysteries and their power to direct my actions as I paint.   My hope is that my paintings will invite viewers to see in new ways and to reconnect with their own sense of wonder.

Octavio Paz, the Mexican poet, winner of the 1990 Nobel Prize in Literature, beautifully expresses what I feel is the essence of my creative process.

    Between what I see and what I say

                                        Between what I say and what I

                                        Keep silent

                                        Between what I keep silent and

                                        What I dream

                                        Between what I dream and what

                                        I forget

                                        Poetry

                                                                            Octavio Paz
