“At a young age, I turned to photography as a means of self-expression. I wanted to capture the true essence of what I see in the outer world.
My paintings are an expression of my heart and soul. I paint my tears, my joy, my anger and the love I feel, all the emotions I experience. I give my feelings expression, a voice and a face. In so doing, I transform them before my very eyes through an alchemical-like process.
In my paintings I am documenting energy. I am documenting the energy of what I feel and sense, making visible the energy of a situation, a relationship, an experience.
My paintings are my teachers and my mentors and they become my sonnets, my poetry, and my short stories. They are my opera, my blues and my Jazz."
