"Simply put: I like to paint. To challenge myself but mostly because I'm so drawn to the process that I feel compelled to keep doing it. There are two sides to me creating art. One of them is really quiet. I think of my brain as a telephone wire. Endless conversations and connections going through but all I can hear is the quiet hum of electricity and the creaking noises in my neck when it gets tense and tired. The other side is me being a complete spaz. I dance, sing, crack jokes, talk in weird voices and listen to music really loud. I enjoy exercising the weird, silliness of life into my art. I paint what I feel or whatever is happening around me. Sometimes my thoughts are like mashed potatoes being shoved through a window screen, but other times they are hand delivered in a pretty package with a bow on top. My art is a documentation of my life and growth as a human."
