I aim to create tension and dialog with the elements of what painting can give me. Painting abstractly helps disguise certain references and ideas to help the audience determine their own narrative about the paintings. Hints are dropped in the form of the title, color schemes or personified shapes and gestures to get the dialog started, but are not too specific where the hint becomes the answer. I use line and transparency  to help create movement and catalyze my impulse to rework, layer and finetune the painting.
