“Traveler, there is no path. Paths are made by walking.”

I love to explore. I’m obsessively curious. Nothing is more thrilling than setting off toward the horizon in life and art.

I’ll use anything to make a mark. I’m attracted to earthy colors, trees, water, abstraction. And simple things.
My studio is my ship on open water, and I’m spying through my glass for new lands and the Other.

I’m moved by courage, authenticity, kindness. Most things don’t make sense and shouldn’t.
I can’t wait for my next adventure to some farther shore. Typical things bore me.

I’m motivated by the words “you can’t”. My brush is my walking stick.
