I do not claim to understand art. Nor do I claim to understand the motives of other artists. All I know for sure is that I can better understand myself by making art. I can better understand my own motivations. That is my art. I’m from California and have been painting professionally since 2001. I love to paint, draw and make things. Its fun, I deeply enjoy it and love hard contrasts. I explore a triad between the viewer’s perspective and dualities on canvas, emphasizing the contrasts between light and shadow, cool and warm colors, beauty and its opposite, but always exploring them as they would be seen or felt by the observer.
