To me art is the product of a life lived. It is born of the desire to express oneself and one’s experiences of this world. I strive to be true to my creative spirit, to apply and scrape the paint in bold strokes where my heart demands it, to listen to the teacher within me and to somehow capture the truest part of myself, my model or the land on which I stand.
Whether the world shows me it’s pain; the suffering in the eyes of the people I pass on my travels - cruelty that I find hard to understand or the indescribable beauty of a simple sparrow, I endeavor to flow it through my heart and hand onto the canvas.
Everything is beautiful - ultimately - you just have to see it.
