"The end result of a painting is a pleasant reward, but it is not as important as what I experienced during the creation process. I have struggled with conflicting emotions, with falsity and truth, hope and despair, joy and sadness, comfort and pain, loss and revelation. The journey of solitude to the unknown to explore new spaces, forms, colors, and my true self".
