â€œIn the studio, I surround myself with canvases of all sizes. I put mounds of paint on my big glass palette, pick up a painting knife and create seemingly random, textured surfaces on the canvas. The layers and layers of paint become the foundation for the paintingâ€™s background. Next comes opaque color; under layers of paint â€œpeek throughâ€, suggesting something hidden and offering depth and visual interest. The shapes inspire the subject; they always become the painting that they are supposed to become. I paint what I love: adult beverages, the musical instruments of jazz, strong coffee. I paint in a bold impressionistic style. I love thick, juicy paint, loose shapes, the smell of the studio. I paint because it fills me with a sense of wellbeing, of belonging, of total â€œbe in the momentâ€ consciousness. I am never closer to myself than at those moments.â€
