My work is personal; each piece represents an individual thought and experience I have drawn from my own sense of spirituality and culture. It is a subconscious journey between my body, my soul and surrounding energy.

My approach can be understood by the old adage: “Paint from nature, but do not paint nature as it is.” This is essentially what I try to do. If I were to make myself strictly paint from reality I would be undermining my own sense of reason with every move I make.

To me, paintings clothe the processes of the human soul in a plastic form and function to enrich our lives. Unlike science, art requires one to explore new territory often without any controls in place. I enjoy the fact that art is not definitive and offers such a broad field to make bold statements.
