About Me

Artist Statement

I use painting, drawing, and music as a meditation to observe and participate in the creative process of life. For me, art isn’t about deliberate planning, intellectual concepts, or political statements. In my work, I try to capture the fleeting creativity and spirituality of each moment and to communicate the joy of being alive. 

Every piece is an act of discovery, of improvisation, as I venture into the unknown, channeling my creative inspiration and letting it flow back into the world on canvas or recording. I always invite my viewers to participate in this discovery. 

We all have our own creativity inside of us, and for any piece to be complete, it requires you, the viewer, to supply this. Fit my work into your life, and find meaning in it to make the creative circuit whole.
