The artwork preparation is as essential as the act of painting the

piece. I construct shape and texture almost like a bas-relief from

ancient civilizations; fossilized relics encased in boxes, collections;

juxtaposing hard-edge geometric structures against free-flowing

organic forms. I build my pieces up layer upon layer, sand down, build up

again and sand down even more, eroding, unearthing, discovering interesting

surfaces, integrating and infusing the layers.
