Artist Statement:

There is far more truthfulness to life in the blurred indistinguishable shapes than in neat and tidy packages. There are no lines between what I do, what I think, and where/when I exist. It is all one experience, one mosaic of many shapes. This holds true in life and painting. Honesty and vulnerability lie in the mystery and in the admittance of shapes I don’t see clearly, in accepting and even celebrating the tension of not knowing. It may be that a painting is all the more truthful for its mysteries.
