I paint and build things to communicate, to connect with the world around me.

What I want to convey usually emerges as images in my head, not words. Though I've tried for years, words--even when accompanied by animated hand waving--have never been enough to express what I mean.

So, I turn to smearing paint, scribbling, and building things in an attempt to communicate what I see and feel. I am in an intense learning period, refining my realistic drawing skills. When I paint at the moment, I experiment with techniques or study something that's caught my eye or made me feel something deeply.

I have no idea what the next years will bring, but I do know that I'll create artifacts to record my journey. What I hope for most is that what I create connects me more deeply to my life and enables others to connect with me.​

"I am always doing that which I cannot do,  in order that I may learn how to do it."

Pablo Picasso

It took me 5 months to get up the nerve to tile my front porch
