I aim to manipulate universal imagery with an acerbic wit that can transcend most of its intended meanings to reveal something of my own reality. For me, painting tends to be an arbitrator responsible for manifestations that can contest any nagging sense of a state of normality. Simply put, painting is really about fun and letting the moment dictate the outcome.
