For me, making art is an organic, linear process: some feeling compels me to apply the first brushstroke, and each stroke informs the next. Over the days or weeks required to complete the piece, other feelings, thoughts and imperatives may arise, and they are folded in as they come, ultimately yielding an artwork incorporating a complex, many-layered stream of conscious and unconscious emotion. My palette is one of vibrant color and simple truths: greens our connection to the natural world, blues reflecting moments at peace, gold is arrogance and passion releases a flood of crimson.
