Artist Statement

I lose myself in the strokes of a painting the same way I get lost in a forest preserve; not having a clue where I am but knowing I am safe on a trail and will find my way at some point.

Art has no expectations or boundaries, it's limitless and freeing and there never has to be a reason for it. Art makes everything else fade away; expectations wash off your brush every time you clean it and all limits life has placed on you disappear under each mountain you create.

Every painting I do is a little painting of myself, all bits and pieces and jagged edges coming together in a swirl of color that when you stand in front of I hope gives you the illusion of a breeze too cold on your face or of wet sand under your feet.
