I don't like to say too much about where my art comes from or what it means. I prefer that the individual who views a painting of mine for the first time does so without any filtering, and relates what they see to their own experiences and not to mine. All I will say is that I use my art to address significant events and emotions in my own life.

Everything I paint has to be absolutely genuine and without artifice and I hope that the responses to it, good or bad, are genuine too.
