My work is a journey to discover and uncover truth—the realness inside that lives free of projections, interpretations and masks. I believe art is a mirror that allows us to see and experience our unvarnished selves. For me, the practice of painting is a microcosm of life. It starts with doubt, then determination, frustration, excitement, success, failure. It unfolds at its own pace with its own magical intent, ignoring the force of my ideas to expose an honesty that is as vast and humbling as space—the universe contained in me and which contains me.
