Statement

Statement:

Words are never enough. My art emerges from a frantic dialogue, a pushing and pulling of constant changes tethered to individual expression. I don’t always understand the world, so I have no recourse but to paint and trust that the process sets free my subconscious, my secrets, and gives voice to fears that I am not able to express in any other way.  I believe in the transcendence of art and its ability to go beyond me, it engages viewers in their own conversation, sometimes overlapping with my own sensibilities, and at other times rejecting my assumptions about the world; and so the dialogue continues.
