Gorilla Walking in front of a boulder. Painting, to me, is a journey, not a destination. Each painting tells a story. These images portray not only the stories, but also, the process. The process of painting is messy. I love that messiness, the smell of the oils and the rich colors I can produce. I choose subjects that I feel bring vibrancy and texture to our lives. With each artwork, I capture a moment in time. With each stroke, I try to reveal my subject's inner self until there is nothing left to hide. I'm not just trying to paint something beautiful, I am holding onto a memory through art.
