As a painter, my primary motivation is to create something I have never seen before. This continual push to find expression, surprise and delight with paint on canvas is what powers my work. Color, line, shapes, layers, transparency, and even mistakes are all language I use on the canvas, all elements that make a painting interesting and unique. I delight in feeling the paint move on the canvas, using a palette knife, a brush, oil sticks, and dripping paint with wooden stir sticks.
