My style is influenced by the abstract expressionist movement which denotes the non-representational use of paint as a means of personal expression.  There is no particular system I follow when I begin a painting.  Each painting has its own way of evolving.  One may start with a few color areas on the canvas; another with a myriad of lines; and perhaps another with a profusion of color.   Once I sense the suggestion, I begin to paint intuitively. When the painting is finished the subject reveals itself. This approach is liberating to me and has allowed me the freedom of expression absent of boundaries.
