"Exactitude is not truth." - Henri Matisse



About My Work


There is a joy in spontaneity and discovery that is somehow lost in trying to represent the “real”. I’m allowing myself to be unrestrained by the representation of any particular thing and allowing whatever I am drawing or painting be what occurs in the moment. I’m inspired by the idea of automatic drawing, spontaneity and improvisation.The hand knows where it wants to go with the pencil or brush and I allow it to happen. Or I follow where the line or the shape or the gesture lead me.
