I am a self taught artist and an intuitive painter and I’ve been described as a painter of refined folk art which works for me. I enjoy the fine art of beautiful things that have been rusted, layered and grounded to a patina. True beauty comes from something well made and surviving the fires of change. We are Raku in other words. One cannot have beauty without an understanding of the underpinnings of pain and how that makes for true and unique beauty. My process is one of layering subconscious and dream and letting the narrative of layer be the voice. I believe we are all storytellers and the best accomplishment for me is to have a viewer connect on a deep level to their own story unique to themselves through my work. It is truly my greatest joy as an artist.
