Painting is a way for me to explore our world. I am using nature and all of her mysteries as my impetus. Whether I am painting someone or something, I am interested in the moment. There is a truth and a narrative that is constantly changing in each moment.
As novelist, Willa Cather said, “If you’re an artist and you want to get steadily better at your craft you need to continually refine your approach to telling the truth.”
The process of painting allows me to lose myself and regain myself as something new.
