Artist Statement



"When I first began my artwork back in December of 1997, I had no intentions of being an "artist." I never had any intentions of showing people what I had created. Each piece represented to me a missing link within myself. And for some reason it was perhaps easier to see when it was presented with lines and color. I would understand my struggle or whatever I was dealing with at that moment when the painting was complete. Showing people my artwork was comparable to standing naked before an arena. I was admitting to myself and to others the nature of my own truth and my own healing."

"As I reach an understanding of the concepts described in my paintings I am then capable of releasing them for the public eye. My intentions are not to make happy people sad nor to make sad people happy. I believe that whatever someone needs to see, they will see."
