When I begin my creative process I do not have a direct path in mind. From experience, I know the process in which I plan to paint, and the mediums I have chosen to use, and thus begins the journey. I lay down my paint with many thoughts and prevalent emotions running through my head. These images help guide my brush or the tools I use to lay down my paints.
As an abstract artist, I view the world from a different perspective. Everything I see and hear is a possible inspiration for a painting. Sometimes the emotions I feel are happy, sometimes sad. It depends on the situations and environments in which I find myself. So many sensations are evoked by the smallest of details. The world becomes overwhelming, with everything my mind has to process. Painting allows me to pour these feelings out onto the canvas. It releases the pressure that builds up over the hours and days in-between picking up a paint brush. It becomes my quiet time, where I can relax and just enjoy the moment.
