My paintings are often allegorical depictions of my feelings and reactions to the world. The initial impulse must be elaborated into a clear idea, and from that idea an image can be born. This process can be almost instantaneous, or take several months or years.
There are mediums that are especially dear to me, namely ceramics, but the desire to explore has led me to study printmaking, painting, and mixed media. I am currently very attracted to mixed media, because it gives me a multidimensional palette.
The subjects of my paintings vary greatly, but there are overarching questions connecting them all: Why are we humans on Earth? How can we achieve harmony of soul, body, thoughts, and actions? I believe that art should tell what it can of an ideal truth. Though this truth cannot be seen, some of its beauty can. Whether my work is born from joy or pain, my goal is to make that beauty seen. I seek to create artworks which are tuning forks for the soul, to help the onlooker find harmony amid chaos, and discover something essential in themselves.
