I think of myself as a creative explorer. I am on a quest of self discovery through art and the act of creating and responding. These past few years have in a way drawn me even deeper into this act of self reflection and learning. I use paint and pencil in the form of portraiture to answer questions that I am not sure I will know the answer to. I am driven by curiosity and the idea of, what if? I would say that these paintings were inspired by that question. Why if I try this? What if I do that? I feel like I am wandering a path that has no true destination, just light bulbs going on along the way. I love to live a creative life that feels somewhat open ended. Following the breadcrumbs. I don’t feel that this is an aimless pursuit though, because there are those moments of completion, and these paintings symbolize that to me. I love to express from where I am at the moment. Art is a living and breathing thing, an expression from the soul. Art is life and art is a journey. I’m grateful to be on that journey.
