Foster City, CA, United States
I am an abstract painter, passionate about creating joyful and straightforward compositions. I experimented with all kinds of materials and substrates, including cement, resin, oil paint, and encaustic, before deciding to work exclusively in acrylic and charcoal on canvas, linen, or Arches Cover paper. I use abstraction instead of referencing recognizable elements so that I am able to improvise. I can focus on lines, shapes, and textures freed from the constraints of figurative forms or narrative depictions. With these formal elements of my medium in mind, I develop simple compositions that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on the pre-visual images in my mind’s eye. Instead of remembering pictures, I visualize shapes and colors, and many of my paintings are materializations of these memories. While my style is unique, I am inspired by Japanese watercolor, Chinese landscape, and abstract painters.
