I fell in love with painting the moment acrylic soaked my hands and stained my fingers, then fell deeper after realizing its immeasurable therapeutic value. Most of my artwork utilizes a technique of using my breath and hands to bring emotion and vision to canvas. This technique occurred on accident during what was then considered a typical evening of desperation and a search for the found comfort in a frenzy of manic painting. Since that time I have been chasing the perfection of an accidental technique with fortitude that this is all so easily attainable for those who seek it and an absolute must for those who need it to survive. This is art... With this grateful understanding, I finally consider myself an artist. My hope is to create something worthy of a simple moment, to reflect and enjoy the often manic times in our lives.
