"I picked up a paint brush for the first time a little over ten years ago. I have continued to pick one up just about every day since. While those exciting, first-time discoveries are not as commonplace as they were in the early days, I still search for those fresh moments. And when encountered they are every bit as thrilling, if not more.

The process is essential. I work in the moment. In my experience, a planned painting is a failed painting. The painting must be free to wander. The best works are those that seem to simply happen."
