Painting, for me, is something of a mystical endeavor. As a artist, I approach my canvases each morning without an agenda. Any plans I may have had before beginning are usually quickly overruled by whatever the paint has in mind.

 

On a good day, I step aside and allow each painting to evolve as it will. I offer up my skills and talents to the universe each day and try to gracefully accept whatever the universe gives me in return.

Some of the artists that have influenced me include Frankenthaler, Hunderwasser, Matisse, Van Gogh, Picasso, Wiley, and Nieto.
