"Somehow with paint I can find a way into the heart of who I am, who I want to be, and how I see the world"
“Being an artist is about knowing it’s going to be a very long dance.”
Paintings evolve. I don't start a piece and know what the finished result will be. I discover things along the way, accidents trip me up, I get stuck, I get struck by something I didn't see or feel when I was staring at the blank canvas.
It's like dancing. Your movements change as the music unfolds, the music becomes your muse, and the dance is an organic thing. I could never dance the exact same dance twice - the same with my paintings. They are manifestations of a particular experience, a time, a space, and none can be replicated.
