Q. There’s a real poetry to your work. Robert Frost defines poetry as when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words. If we substitute words for image is that close to what your work aims to capture?
A. Well, I have always found painting and drawing the most direct way for me to communicate my experiences of the world around me. Idiosyncratically the end result is hopefully something akin to painting or drawing a picture that I am unable to explain.
Q. A nice easy one to end with (!)… Why do you make art?
A. I want to paint and create a vision that furthers my experiences of the world.
