Artist's Statement

I don’t have a specific style, approach, or ideology, It seems so much more appropriate at this point in time to be willing to try anything. No standard formula or way of making a painting, it’s always more like, ok what’s going to happen? Painted somewhere between awkwardness, chance and intuition, as long as I’m not making the same painting over and over again, it’s ok.
