"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."
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."
