Artist Statement

Making art allows the rip-roaring life force inside me to go where it goes. It’s a gift and a challenge, both laborious and transcendent. Sometimes I enter a trance-like state and hours go by: the studio a mess, paint all over the place, the sun setting, I’m hungry – but he thrill of discovery is intoxicating. The artist Marcel Duchamp once described the process from idea to realization as, “the unexpressed but intended and the unintentionally expressed.”
