a few thoughts

i paint small paintings because they are often more intimate, more critical and less

decorative, inviting a closer look which reveals the subtlest gesture. the surface and

the hand that made them are as closely married to their meaning as the image itself.

for me, small paintings invite an intense engagement with my materials and an

opportunity for excess in both paint and subject matter.

small paintings are capable of shouting across a large room but also of whispering

quietly in your ear.
