My Artistic Practice Reflects The Rawness And Honesty Of My Experiences, Relationships, And Heartbreak. I Feel That We’ve Stopped Relating To Each Other And That We Only Ever Try To Sell Or Impress. It’s All Ego Driven And We’ve Lost Our Minds. I Desire For Us To Return To A Heart-Light Level. Each Painting And Series I Have Made Has A Story Attached To It And Is Born From The Integration Of My Varied Interests And Creative Practices—Film, Acting, Visual Art, And Performance Art. I Consider Every Painting An Opportunity And Means To “Process” The Ego And Allow Inner Guidance To Flow. My Paintings Mirror The Way We See The Human Body In Its Environment And Is An Ongoing, Evolving, And Inclusive Process. They Reflect The Vitality And Process Of Living. I Body-Stencil Myself Along With People Around Me, And I Never Paint The Same Body Twice. There Is This Flourish, Intensity, Depth, Range, And Awe When I Spend Time With Real Artists And Make Them The Subject Of My Processes. Being “A Piece Of Art” And Having The Courage To Do What Feels Inspiring, Brings Me, The Person I Am Stencilling, And The Viewer Back To An Entry Level Of Communication, Conversation, Surrender And Innocence—Back To Humanity. Through My Paintings And My Extended Creative Practices, I Want To Encourage People To Speak From Their Hearts And Simply To Be.
