Most of my work starts without an initial drawing but is preceded by many hours of research and thought. This creative process begins with an idea bubbling into my consciousness. As the paint hits the painting surface, the images begin to reveal themselves. I prefer to work on a large format using masonite or canvas. I may start by gluing paper to the board or by randomly applying colors to which I feel drawn. As the piece develops, the forms take shape. Gesso, paint and more paper is applied and the creative process begins all over again. It may take weeks or months to complete a painting. In the end is a merging of horse and human.
