Currently I am painting abstract expressionism. My paintings are adventures into mazes or puzzles, with unknown content and without a plan. The end product will be the result of fitting together the pieces of the puzzle, or getting through the maze with many varieties of tools and mediums, using color, texture, line, gestures, forms and other elements to complete the final painting. The mystery of the experiment and the unknown result of the journey are the reason I paint. A successful painting is never guaranteed.


Activating the viewer’s curiosity or imagination is an extra bonus.
