My work is rough to the touch,
Much like life and nature,
my work looks like chaos
combined with structured shapes
that calm the view.
It’s the art of
d i s a s s e m b l i n g
that I try to paint about;
How to find truth between the layers.
How do you find truth between layers?
I work spontaneously and intuitively.
I like to let ‘accidents’ happen and then use them,
tossing out perfectionism and leaving what one might consider a mistake
e x p o s e d,
and in plain view.
I have an instinct as an artist to simultaneously engage in life and escape from it;
To show myself yet hide myself at the same time.
But just as nature constantly and continuously reorganizes itself,
shifting in and out of coherence,
I myself try to take part in the delightful game and ongoing discovery of our
interconnectedness with nature and its laws:
Observing everything, making note of what I see,
how I feel, and the thoughts that follow –
then I paint.
