Painting, drawing


Artist's Statement:
I paint because painting takes me on a ride. I get to explore my inside story (-ies) while ostensibly using tools from the material world. For me, there is no better way to spend my time. In conversation with others, I am often quiet, allowing them to dominate. In the studio, however, the conversation is a visual excursion through my own thought and emotion. It is a lot of emotion: frustration, doubt, curiosity, always accompanied by fear and insecurity. It is a wild, often uncomfortable, ride.
