My art has always come from a place of instinct for me. When I paint, it's like meditation- an opportunity to fully see and appreciate the beauty and wonder around us. My life and my observations reduce down to a pure essence- and it pours onto the surface of the canvas.
The challenge for me as a painter is how to convey an idea with the least number of paint strokes so that the viewer fills in the rest. This leads to a conversation between artist and veiwer, and allows the piece to change and have a life of its own.
