 Statement
When I reflect on this journey, I feel deep gratitude for where I am and how I got here. Early on in life I learned the importance of self-discipline and its role in getting good at something.


I love to work fast and yet the insights that arise from patience and discipline are what move my work forward. Still, shortcuts are sweet when they work.

I am often surprised and always pleased when the paint ends up where it needed to be.

I describe myself as a post pre-cambrian nouveau neolithic constructionist of the new old school tongue-in-cheek tradition.
 
Taking a cue from the great cave painters of our long distant past I realize that, “Making the art is the art and what ends up on a board or canvas is an artifact that has been left behind for the rest of us to observe and wonder".
