My work is a celebration of the imagination, often with a bit of irony and a splash of humor. Sometimes I begin a painting with no preliminary sketch or preconceived idea in mind at all and simply let my imagination lead my brush in spontaneous directions, then allow my sensibility to choose the end result. Other times a quick sketch might inspire a new painting, and I attempt to recreate each line as exact to the original sketch as possible. Creating something from nothing is not an easy process, but that’s what attracts me to the visual arts, I enjoy the challenge, but more than anything I enjoy seeing the evolution of my work as I evolve as an artist and a person.
My art can be purely aesthetic at times or can have deep personal meaning, it really depends on what inspires me at that particular moment. I might be inspired by lyrics to a song, by the colors I see in a Miro or Picasso painting, or a random thought which comes to me at night. My paintings, if executed properly, should speak for themselves without the need for explanation. However, I relish in knowing that each person will interpret the same image a little differently and I’m happy with that.
