MY SUBJECT MATTER IS MY EMOTIONS, THOUGHTS, AND DREAMS, AND I PAINT BECAUSE I MUST;
THEY HAVE TO GET OUT.
FOR EACH PAINTING, I SPECIFICALLY CHOOSE SHAPES AND COLORS THAT REFLECT HOW I FEEL WHEN THE THOUGHT OR DREAM COMES TO ME.
SOMETIMES, I WONDER WHAT DOES GOD LOOKS LIKE?
DO I EXIST ON OTHER PLANETS AND WHAT WOULD THEY LOOK LIKE?
I CHOOSE TO COMMUNICATE THESE THINGS IN AN ABSTRACT MANNER TO THE VIEWER BECAUSE THEY ARE PRIVATE.
I PAINT ON LARGE CANVASES BECAUSE I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY. SOME OF MY PAINTINGS ARE CREATED IN GROUPS OF THREES, YET EACH ONE IS STRONG ENOUGH TO STAND ON ITS OWN.
WHEN I’M PAINTING I USE BRUSHES, MY BARE HANDS, AND OTHER TOOLS. THAT IS THE MOST COMPELLING WAY TO CAN COMMUNICATE WITH THE VIEWER. I PAINT BECAUSE IT’S MY DESTINY.
