TRUTH

Art is a lot of things to many people. For some, it's an invitation to an alternative way of regarding everything, maybe even an alternative way of thinking. For a few, art is a transformative experience. I like to think of my process as engaging those notions. As I enter into the act of creation, I bring an awareness of who I am and where I've traveled on the most important voyages, the ones inside.

Creating large art is a discovery process for me. Though I have a plan, I'm never quite sure what the outcome will be, because the process is evolutionary. Underlying all of this is a simple love for life and the Truth in all things great and small.

William Blake said that, "If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear as it is – infinite". The artist is the keeper of the key.
