1000 drawing exhibition - Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, 1995
In a traditional sense, most of my work fits the art categories of "abstract" or "expressionist" painting. I prefer the phrase "intuition painting" because it is tied directly to the creative process itself. For me, intuition is the wellspring and inner voice that guides me though all the aesthetic decisions that go into my paintings. I prefer this blind creative exploration because I want to be surprised by the outcomes. Though my paintings are abstract images, I feel rooted in the intrinsic beauty of the natural world. Since I leave my works open to the viewer's interpretations, I am interested in their impressions as this enriches my own artistic experience. The highest achievement I can attain however is to have my audience see something in my work that inspires them to create.
