I consider myself an abstract impressionist, and that is the genre I would apply to my work. My goal is to transform the natural order into a suggestive interpretation to stimulate the imagination, both through my own experience as I create it and in the mind of the viewer when they are in front of a piece. My hope is that what a person sees and enjoys in my work will always be a highly personal experience, drawing on their memories, personality and awareness. This is an important aspect of understanding my work. I work with both acrylic and an epoxy/resin on canvas.
