For me, painting is a way of exploring my inner self. It is a personal reflection of my feelings and how I relate to the world around me. It might be music, a life experience or an emotion that inspire me to begin a painting. Once the paint touches the canvas, an intuitive process takes hold. My purpose is to create from a place of recklessness that abandons all expectations and my hope is to embrace the result. My joy comes from what emerges as the process unveils the unique qualities of each piece.
"Painting is just another way
of keeping a diary"
- Pablo Picasso
I paint in layers and as the layers build, my process of scratching and wiping out areas begin to reveal a language that is all its own and allows me a form of expression without words. It's my personal journal.
