The Art: My works come from a method of layering, covering and obscuring.

My paintings are the product of creating forms, then painting over all but the traces of those forms,
then beginning again. The result is a work in which expression is obscured or absent and the process and its result are central.

My drawings layer stories and themes in a matrix of 'noise'and competing images, so that the original themes I had in mind are obscured, difficult to extract, and irrelevant.
