Each step taken in life is part of a path to an understanding of oneself…an exploration, a contemplation, a discovery. Each step impacts the next, broadening one’s scope and honing one’s skills. This is also what art is to me. Each painting is influenced by the previous work and spurs the imagination for the next one. My goals in art are to never become static in any aspect of the creative process, to follow the instincts that lead the brush, and to always make a new discovery in the process.
