Artist Statement

I am a storyteller without words. I paint our stories.


Forsaking paint brushes, I paint with my hands. I gesture,
throw, and drip. And in painting, I flow.


I paint circles and ovals. I paint squares. And in duality, I find union.


I paint the dance of shadow and light. And in dancing, I create beauty in shadow.


I paint infinity. And in boundlessness, we are one.


I paint to tell my story. I paint so you hear your story. And in the telling, we are transmuted.


I am a storyteller without words.
