I often create in unusual locations sometimes being a creative witness to events, both benign and terrible. Yesterday’s celebration can be combined with today’s disaster.
Some kind of calligraphy arrives as I let my brush dance with the movement of people and nature.
The resulting works are often multilayered as I bring the canvases through many locations and stories.
I try to make both the ordinary and the unfathomable my stomping ground.
