I paint from memory, using sketches and photographs as reference, but informing the painting with everything I am thinking about in my life and the world at large. I use abstracted natural images for my narrative, communicating my emotional temperature through the use of color, shape and line. There is a strong spiritual influence in my work that accesses the sublime and the beautiful.
