Artist’s Statement

Painting is not for the fainthearted… It is a balancing act between order and chaos on a highwire of perception that requires courage and defiance in the face of ever-increasing uncertainty. It is an act of love that risks vulnerability and exposure to ridicule. It is a testament of faith in the creative power that was never yours to begin with.
