Making images is my way of connecting with others.

I paint out of a sense of wonder and curiosity with the world, being fascinated with its contradictions ambiguities and inconsistencies. I follow whatever attracts my attention and explore it, not necessarily knowing where it will lead. The process continues until the finished painting emerges. 

I like using a variety of media ,whatever best serves my purpose: acrylic for its speed of editing,oil for its richness and interplay with light, and oil crayons or chalk to add another textural element. I sometimes add other elements such as adding charcoal dust to the surface.
