When painting, I am inclined towards narrative fed by real and imagined stories. Everything I know and am converges when I paint. Driven by memory, intention and intuition, I am thinking all over the place. Fragments swim in a kind of chaos and are plucked out and juxtaposed. Working in a circular way, I add and subtract characters, story lines, dreams, memories and secret languages constantly maneuvering a tightrope between manipulation and surrender.”
