Artist Statement

Painting is a cross between a crap shoot, finding your way out of the woods, and performing a magic
act. Each time I begin to paint I feel like I am walking a tightrope—sometimes scary, sometimes
exciting, sometimes very quiet, and always, always surprising; leading me where I never expected to
go. Doing art makes me lose all sense of time and place and go inside one long moment of creating.
Whenever I feel a painting in my gut, I know this is why I paint. The colors are the message, I feel
them before my mind has a chance to get involved. Color is the most agile and dynamic medium to
create joy. And if you can find joy in your art, then you’ve found something worth holding on to.
