Artist, Writer

For me, painting is a commitment to the difficulties of material, a search for looseness, a way in. And if/when it works, I want to hand my take on the world back to the world, because it needs another's eyes on it to be of any value. If that doesn't happen it's dead in the water.

'That's how art exists in this world of ours - a clear head in the face of calamity.' Charles Simic
