Artist Statement

 

My process is to listen and respond. The subject is always a mystery to me. I never know what I am creating until it's complete. I would say the most important part of my process is just staying present. When I am listening to myself, I can connect easily to my soul. Sometimes inspiration comes to me in intricate pieces. I may have a dream about one stroke of color, and then cannot touch it again for days. Other times I can complete an entire large scale piece in one sitting. I let the work guide me. Working as an abstract expressionist draws me to concepts not subject matter. It becomes an adventure Instead of a destination; this is the most freeing feeling in the world. After I have a number completed I may see the story unfold. Most times I write and paint at the same time. Painting creates the dialogue, causing an internal form of communication. For my art is the expression of my soul to the world. I create art because I must, the same reason I eat and sleep. I need to express my soul to survive. Its lovely when other people appreciate my work, I have to admit I love what I do. If I get to keep my work it also brings me joy. If a piece is meant to be sold, then it will be. I have complete faith that I am on my true path in life, so I am open to wherever it will take me. My only job is to just be.

Borrowed Faith

Borrowed Faith: For those times in your life when you lack the ability to see your own light. In these moments you must borrow the faith of others until you believe it yourself. Like the backbone this is a symbol of the inner strength inside all of us.
