Artist Statement

i cannot call something useless.

i see what others call ordinary or broken as mediums for color and texture, that when layered, built up, and cared for, create beauty.

for years people have questioned me as to how i could enjoy having clutter and useless items around me. i did not see scraps, i saw future masterpieces, yet composed.

i enjoy color almost as one would enjoy taste. my day brightens by an array of unexpected hues, beauty exploding from the most unlikely of places.

i simply must create. to not create would be like holding my breath. while context and canvas may change from season to season, one thing is certain. this painter must always paint.
