Each painting for me is a kind of adventure. I paint things that move me, and hope that some grain of truth about the world I see and know can be revealed within. I work and rework a painting until it finds me. I use color to evoke mood and essence, and strive to connect outer subjects to an internal impression, a world they leave me with.
