"My paintings are a combination of caprice and control. Fracture is important. Random marks, sloshed paint, or a scratched surface can be as significant as the carefully rendered. The scribble and the refined. I often work with images drawn from the ocean community of my home in Maui. The narrative I have created is left to the viewer's interpretation. The viewer should see the paint as much as the image."
