I generally do not approach a blank sheet of paper or canvas with a set notion of what my end result will be. I paint with a water based medium on canvas and paper. I paint with many different water based paints and use a very explosive gestural line in my work. I rarely use paint brushes and mainly paint with my hands. I have never forgot the wonder and textural feeling of finger painting in kindergarten If I were to place my work in a genre it would be contemporary expressionism as I have been deeply influenced by the work of the abstract expressionists. Hans Hofman, Mark Rothko, Elaine and William de Kooning, Jackson Pollack, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler and Cy Twombly to name a few.
