i've always been quite private about my process when working and yet wanting to share as it is a very important part of my being. perhaps it is because painting connects me with my innermost self that feels beyond physical form, journeying to a space unknown or maybe because, as much as i love connecting with all of life, internally, there is a part that is introverted which deeply treasures the intimate exchange of energies that come vividly to life when seeing images come to life on paper.
whatever it may be, i am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share these moments in a way that spoke honestly from the heart. the words that were scribed through writer megan laber's experience of the studio visit, to ian flanigan's captures of these moments through his lens to the flowing cinematography created by rj mintz, all felt fleeting yet timeless, which is experienced when seeing colors bleeding through the water when painting.
being inspired by the work of others constantly, i hope that what is shared can be a part of a dialogue created through the centuries by humans from all walks of life. at the least, i hope that it can be a way to, unobtrusively, open a deeper part of myself with others.
