My painting is an intersection between the finite and infinite aspects of time. It is an explosion of spring, summer, autumn, and winter colors. It is nostalgia for experiences that have already happened and those that will never happen. It's an opportunity to see a ray of light break through a crack in a constant state of emotional anxiety, fear, and insecurity which haunts some inhabitants of modern cities. I've always been interested in the meaning of freedom and how others understand it and I try to show this understanding in my paintings. I believe everyone chooses their thoughts, emotions, and attitudes in life and I try to understand these choices and represent them in my art. Shapes and colors constantly freeze or dance around in my head and demand to come out.
My artistic style is constantly forming and evolving. As my life develops and changes, so do my methods, techniques, and materials. Life is amusing and absurd sometime and I adore when my work makes people smile or laugh even when it's dark or cloudy in the world. I think my greatest virtue is my biggest flaw: curiosity. My interest in art, architecture, and tradition drives me and carries me from city to city and from country to country. I've been lucky to travel the world and wander around the large and small galleries of Paris, Madrid, Florence, London, and Amsterdam. I contemplate the works of the great masters of the Renaissance and the contemporary artists. I enjoy learning. I love adventure and have partaken in a few. I've flown over the Valley of the Kings in a hot air balloon in Egypt. I've been abducted to be married (such was the custom) in the Caucasus mountains. I've been covered in sand and had to escape during a sandstorm in the Sahara Desert. I've hunted blue marlin in Cabo. I've survived a severe hurricane in Cuba. I've swum to an island in Honduras to bring Christmas presents to the residents. I've dived in the Caribbean and Red seas. I've swum with dolphins and manatees. I've danced on hot coals and broken glass when I was engaged in self-development and yoga practice. This is me, and this is what drives my art.
