“As I begin a painting a subject physically, it emotionally and spiritually reveals itself to me. Each brushstroke speaks to the subsequent stroke, carrying out a dialogue, linking my subject and I as if we were meeting for the first time. I find this uncertainty exciting and embrace the indecisive nature of my work.
Artwork is love made visible…”
