My work tends toward the abstract. The words 'playgrounds for the mind' popped into my thoughts as I was searching to explain the reason for this. I seek to produce pieces that are some combination of beautiful and interesting.
Art should be fun. It should evoke emotions, explore beauty and stimulate thought. I love how one can use the written word to share ideas and share emotions and plan to enjoy some time with those magical black marks in the future. But painting reaches people in a different way—communicates in a way that words cannot.
When art is being made and when art is being experienced, there is a dimension of it that is never experienced directly by the conscious mind. There is something wonderful about that.
