Artist’s Statement

From an early age, I’ve had a great need to investigate the human condition, life’s balancing act of survival and transcendence. Language and philosophy were the ways to abstract the meaning of the human experience and understand the feelings or thoughts behind them.

Today, I am compelled to put those feelings to canvas and poem. It is purely an act of survival. Not physical survival, but emotional and gives way to express the intimate sense of human emotion through painting and poetry as a ritual gesture of my own healing.

I am motivated to translate more than an aesthetic quality of work and insist that my emotions connect to the natural world by combining mental and physical environments through limitless color. Here, through creativity and struggle both worlds combine outside the limits of duality.

Often we negotiate with reality, yet looking beyond physical boundaries and pursuing ones vision through immaterial energies to decode humanity can be a truly rewarding experience.
