This collection of paintings is an ongoing journey that continues to unfold with the passing of time. Fueled by a backlog of sketches, photos and imagery I’ve been saving for several years, I decided it was time to see what stories they tell when brought together, and though this is where the collection stands now, the stories continue to evolve and change.
While creating this series, I am reminded that the searching that exists in life, that propels creative thinking and action, is a transformative process. There is knowledge and understanding that can be revealed through the process of creating that can be activated in no other form of learning/remembering.
