Painting came to me through providence. After my grandfather passed away, his box of paints were given to me. I would later discover that I also inherited the love of the tactile qualities of oil, the smell of linseed, and the sensual blending of color.
The images that I create come from my imagination. With the canvas before me and stillness in mind, the visions rise and the paint gives form to the image. I paint in a variety of media, including watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and of course, oil.
