I have always been intrigued by the unknown. It drives me to explore. I love to find new gems from unknown artists and musicians. And I have always found joy in making something new. It drives me to pick up my paintbrush, guitar, pen, violin, etc.
I love painting nature and color as a microcosm of life itself – trees reaching for light, bent by abuse, and craving nourishment. I am drawn by beauty mixed with mystery. Pure realism or impressionism has never had great appeal to me. The blank canvas is an unknown world and I find myself searching out mystery rooted in reality. When I create I feel that I am doing what I was made to do, whether or not anyone likes it or can understand it.
