My work is a continually evolving journey of learning and discovery, and I’m not so sure I will ever feel I have arrived. My main motivations in doing this: try new things, reach some un-tapped parts of my brain, and get out of my comfort zone. I have been trying new techniques and mediums. Just exploring. I have never taken any art classes, so much of my stuff is just ‘playing around’. For some of my work, I have occasionally landed on a technique that paints the ‘negative space’ around the object I want to portray – with a recent focus on abstract figures. A year from now, my paintings might look very different (or not). On a sidewalk outside LACMA museum, I was moved by a quote that suggested “Art gives you permission to be different”.
