I paint for thought exploration, conflict resolution, mind organization and because it's what I most love to do. I study shape, texture and light, in nature and in the mind. The rhythms of the universe and the shapes and colors of emotion keep me forever searching. My vision sees connections, these connections tell stories and I pass those on with paint. Although often abstract, my goal is to pass these along, in a way that the subconscious understands, connecting with the memory parts of the brain, creating a new story or conjuring an old one for the viewer. I also very often paint just because it’s fun! I am a self-taught, full time acrylic painter, originally from Evergreen Park, IL, now living in Esmont, VA.​
