” I tear up books, slice into my old woodblock prints, and cut my drawings out of the paper they’re drawn on. The destruction is disquieting but also liberating- there are wonderful possibilities to be found in these colorful pieces of paper.
Usually each piece of art resolves itself in a manner that I didn’t foresee and didn’t even think was possible.”

“One of the best learning tools was the 365 project I completed in 2010. I posted one photo a day for a year on Flickr. At the end of the year, I had a nice variety of photos that were just sitting on my hard drive.”

“I love to create my art in a spontaneous way, no thinking, making mistakes and learning all the time about the process of creating something. I leave the paper and painting do all the work because I like to think that materials are alive. What I intend to do is to show this silent dialogue between them.”

“In the process of creation , I often use accident, time and place where I am, is my inspiration. Artistic values are the same important for me as aesthetic values. I research and experiment, sometimes giving myself to it.”

“You could say I self medicate with paint. The result is a communication and a connection with others. I often find that people are attracted to my work they are growing through their own challenges and a certain piece speaks to that part of them.”
