What does it feel like? In my best days, I remember to ask this question and listen for an answer. All things alive feel.
This is my work. To look, to love, to learn what it is to see with eyes unburdened by preconceptions. To find the relationships
that are interlaced between within around us each. Sometimes the exploration reveals dark places, sometimes I simply bask in
the ten thousand pretty things. I paint to express the inner world within exterior avatars, our human condition, the beauty
and life around me.
