''I have never found the use of words a satisfactory means of expression for myself. Painting has always been the one true place where I feel I can pour out my heart and soul. I choose to work on wooden panels or paper because it allows me to indulge my love of drawing. I work in oil washes and pencil. Sometimes I even shade the color with pencil. Subject matter has always come from within and I paint my thoughts and emotions. I also use my personal experiences and my reaction to the world around me. My work has always been subjective rather than objective. It’s an inside job''
