“I am often moved to make an impression of what is beautiful and graceful. Even the simple aspects of applying a mark on paper or canvas can be a joy. And working with a suite of marks that eventually deliver form is a way of giving life all over again. I have not been an artist that desires to create something radical and leave a wake of mystification behind my every stroke. To me, for now, my drawings and paintings act as an outlet and reference to my studies and curiosities. They are embellished only by the way a unique individual can see the world as compared to another, honestly, and without agenda for something greater. I am not against exploration or fanciful ideas that help transcend one’s existence and understanding, rather, I simply enjoy growing into such a revelation by way of appreciating the smaller aspects of the application itself.”
