Abstraction was just a natural evolution in painting for me; it allows for the opportunity to capture an uninhibited motion, and a more fluctuating progression in producing the final work. I draw reference from life experience, memory, or a feeling. My process is always in a state of flux. It starts with one medium or technique I'm interested in at the time and then gradually develops from there. As an outcome to a work, I press the viewer more into making decisions about what it represents. I don't want to give clues and try not to make the work too self-evident as a particular thing, only what it is. There are no specific titles given to images, this way the viewer is only influenced by what is seen rather than what is read. Over time, the act of painting for me has evolved into a matter of instinct and happenstance.
