"I look at walls on the streets that have aged and corroded over time and see them as works of art.   Chipped paint, rust patterns, splitting wood...these are natures the man made world.   The deterioration of paint, metal, and wood has the most spectacular spectrum of color and shape..I try and take this concept to my canvas’.  My art is a reaction to the world, and nature that surrounds me.   My concept has to do with freedom, seeing opportunities everywhere in nature, and translating them as paintings. These images already exist, all that’s needed are the tools to allow them to transform and show themselves to the world.  I respond with paint to canvas or patina to copper and allow the paintings to take on a life of their own.  Many times beauty comes through accident, as in nature."
