My artist statement:

Picasso said: inspiration exists, but it has to find us working. 

I completely agree, it says a lot about making art. It is work, you practice and practice and within that lovely (or difficult, boring, challenging, fun, tedious) act, moments happen where all the walls crumble down, boundaries crack open and the source flows through and you’re able to translate for a minute onto paper, canvas, tape whatever that is.

The true meaning of any art lies in the experience of it. I make it, because in those inspired moments and in the process of work itself, I find meaning and connection to something larger than myself. My hope would be that my work can inspire this same feeling in people who see it. The feeling of not being alone, of feeling understood and connected.
