As an artist, I’m interested in the choices I can make, the inventory or “visual vocabulary” I can build which is unique to me but accessible to those I come into contact with through my paintings. At times I choose subjects or arrangements because they are funny, which is essential and miraculous. Some of my paintings are meant to host the sublime, which is the undercurrent of our world; it’s origin and mystery. Other paintings are meant to remind the viewer of an aspect or attribute to lay claim to.  I paint paintings that I want to see, that I can’t wait to paint. I simply trust my own interest and taste expecting others to come along.
