“Painting for me is always a process of discovery. That is what intrigues me and keeps me working, and these works have led me on a continuing experience of discovery. For me painting is like writing a poem or creating a piece of music, but with color and shape -- capturing an experience, a feeling that might otherwise be fleeting and
forgotten. I never cease to get excited about color, how colors mix and form something new. There is something truly mysterious about the process.”
