Prone to abstraction and experimentation my process is both simple and complex. I create intuitively allowing one mark to lead to another in a fluid meandering discourse: an improvisational process akin to experimental jazz. This dance of personal confessions records moments in time instances that hold the world still freezing time when stars seem to align mountains move and realities are transformed. I embracing it all: the contrasts and contradictions of living within the rhythm of this wonderfully bizarre entanglement. I invite you to walk where I have walked and feel all that is me.
