“For me being an artist is exciting, fun and challenging.  My paintings are about distortion, shape and color. Slightly distorting objects and using unexpected or peculiar color combinations is a curiously satisfying habit of mine.  While I paint I try to remain spontaneous and layer new colors all the time.  I like the under paintings to show through because it results in edges and textures that were completely unplanned. There is a feeling of balance and harmony that occurs when I know I have finished a painting.”
