"I am fascinated by the ever-changing, yet cyclical nature of being human! I am amazed by the layers we have, the pasts that have conditioned us and the cyclical lenses that we see ourselves and the world through. We are all like little onions, constantly discovering and revealing new layers of ourselves over time. It excites me to find parallels to this in my painting process. My paintings reveal themselves to me, layer by layer, with so many opportunities for happy mistakes, surprise reactions, or, in some cases, wrong turns to recover from. I enjoy the improvisational roller-coaster of abstract painting. "
