A painting's potential for immediate change is a liberating agent: I am concerned with gestures that feel necessary in a given moment, rather than the final image. A build-up of truthful marks guides me to conclusion. Despite any and all research informing the works, intuition is the most important element of my artist practice. I am stirred by travel and new landscapes, and the key structural elements in my paintings reference the natural world: weather patterns, tectonic shifts, fields in bloom. I intentionally paint 'big' so that I feel overwhelmed by my own paintings, much as I do at the first step of a mountain I wish to ascend. (LWF, 2016)
