My passion is to capture motion and emotion. Since I have loved both painting and horses from childhood, it follows that horses are often my subject. They express openly the emotions we humans share, as well as having a beauty that captivates me.
My process is to show up at the studio, and see where a painting decides to go. Sometimes it is an abstraction, other times quite representational. A single stroke can say it all, or many layers obscured and revealed over a long period with an ever changing story. I am happy when the viewer has an understanding and emotional response that is personal and reflective of their own lives. Often images show up unexpectedly and what is interpreted by the viewer is quite different than what I experienced while painting the work.
