"Most of my paintings today are created using palette knives instead of traditional paintbrushes. I enjoy this method because of the organic feel it lends to the pieces. This small amount of lack of control allows the medium itself to help decide the outcome of the final painting. I look forward to this uncertainty each time I start a new painting."
"Some of my works incorporate exclusively found, recycled or everyday objects. It’s my own artistic attempt at up-cycling. Old windows, metal items like hinges and brackets, even aluminum foil and bottle caps, all find their places in my pieces."
"I love the the creative expression this affords me in my work and personal life."
