"Painting is a privilege. " -Alice Neel
I love both the immediate satisfaction and the journey it eventually takes over time.
Painting allows me to explore color and portraits to tell stories that people connect to.
Connection.People and color combinations have been a lifelong interest. I can be fairly quiet because my mind is always busy, I have a constant flow of ideas and images that rarely stay the way they start and I love that.
