Everything begins from a bubbling excitement that's triggered by my senses. I dive into the wonder and involvement of whatever the subject may be and take it for a ride. There's many levels and mediums that are used in my paintings. As the magical ball spins, messages and pieces of life attach to it and are then used cosmically and lovingly throughout. An impressionistic fisherman who represents all of us, to a mixed media personified animal that mocks us as humans, there is always something that lights up my subconcious and then circles back to my reality.
