"I consider the act of creating my nature. An act of expression based on intuition. Growing up, I felt a sense of disconnect from the world and the people around me. Visual art paved the way for me to express things that I could not express verbally.  My work is a collection of personal experiences transcribed into layers of paint and mixed media, coded into whatever substrate I can find. Each piece can be considered a journal entry to my life experiences on this earth. I have always found a sense of place in nature and creating art.  I believe nature and art are the same things."
