For me, painting is about relationships.
I feel a connection to a vast collective of creatively-minded people who inspire me; connection to a greater purpose, the spiritual-like component of making art; and, connection to my inner-self which is one place where I find solace and joy.
I’m interested in light, colour, mark, and the balance of spontaneity and control.
I take visual cues from nature but rarely work from it directly, siphoning imagery from memory or my imagination.
The greatest challenge is listening to the work and knowing what it is telling me to do.
