      Painting and drawing are both necessary and natural things to me. I am extremely involved with my pieces physically and emotionally, more often than not the content results from pure nerve or internal struggle. I feel a part of the medium or surface; there is a rhythm established by what I am feeling. I paint and draw the figure for its complexities, which is as important as it is for the model to be sitting there; I am completely detached from the person. The model is purely an object to me that I use to create a work of art.
      I strive to challenge myself. If a piece in progress does not have a degree of difficulty, I am not interested in pursuing it. I like to manipulate the medium of painting and drawing and the more versatile a tool the better.

I test myself to do something with it that I did not know I was capable of. The content of my work is always evolving; although I may be finished with a piece, I rarely feel satisfied. The second you label some thing done, it suggests finality-slowing the process and stopping the growth of the work. All my pieces are an introspection of my surroundings and myself, a record of my everyday thoughts and feelings.
