"I have always enjoyed Abstract Expressionism, as a painting style. It is a very raw, bold, and exciting style of art to me. It involves substantial planning, but the actual execution of the paintings are very rapid and very satisfying to an artists emotional input. There is no erasing or redrawing mistakes. The bold commitment to bright colors and heavy black lines creates powerful imagery that brings a vibrant energy into the room."
