The longer I think about making art the more I understand that there should be no rules about making art. For my entire life, I have searched for the secrets of making art only to come to the realization that formal answers are never going to get me where I want to go. Linear and aerial perspective, principles of design, elements of art, color theories, what media to use, and how to use them are all the things that keep an artist from FREEDOM. If art is not about being free then it is not art but science.

The images presented here are the latest paintings I have made. These images mean nothing.

Even the titles were created after the paintings were completed

I love everything about painting. I love feeling the paint, seeing a rich color spread under my brush onto a surface, and the play between colors coming together. I love watching my idea take form until a painting finally says “it” and I am surprised and delighted every time. I love sharing my art and knowing that someone is moved by it.
