"My approach to painting is best described by borrowing a quote from the late English novelist Douglas Adams:  “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

When I paint, the creative process is an evolving experience--exasperating one moment, exhilarating the next.  I enjoy the challenge of putting the initial brush strokes and colors onto a canvas and seeing where they take me.

Sometimes there are conscious decisions, sometimes frenetic impulses.  There are false starts, sputters and dead ends--but I usually arrive at a place I could never have imagined, and that’s what makes it worthwhile."
