My paintings are about a narrative of brushstrokes. I want the viewer to be able to see the sequence of my actions and how strokes are born, live, and die on the canvas. I’m drawn to the act of weaving because it injects both time and sequence into my pictures. I'm also influenced by principles of theatre improv: I like to work within a rigid structure but allow the execution to be subject to chance, whims of materials and my own impulses.
