As an oil painter I produce both abstract and figurative work. My paintings invite the viewer to immerse themselves in the natural world. I paint my emotional response to what I see. I use a variety of implements to apply paint to the canvas. The results are often accidental. I look for beauty in the chaos, developing suggested shapes and forms
