Visual art, for me, is most interesting when it's provocative, sensuous, angry or even downright scary. So I don't self censor, my approach is warts and all. My internal human condition and troubling thoughts are shown to anyone who takes a moment to view my pictures. I strive to be as raw and honest as I can be. I'm not politically, sociologically, or religously motivated. What I want to express with my painting I just couldn't express in any other way. 

I mostly work directly on the canvas or paper with no under drawing. I don't plan a picture. I enjoy working more from chance and discovery on the fly. I normally use an airbrush to quickly capture whatever emotion comes over me during a working session, later using any necessary tools (brushes, fingers, paper towels,etc.) to complete and enhance the picture.
