Well.... as the years have passed, I have figured out that my work is still
about personal and spiritual truths.  I think it will always be about truth.
Really, what is painting if it is not truth?  Now, however, my work is more
about the mysteries that life has to offer. Making the invisible visible. I
realize now that what I want to say in my work is less about narrative and
more about a presence. Beauty despite pain, sadness, hurt, all that
difficult stuff. I want to paint that which is ugly and beautiful. The
things that hold my interest, are the things that we cannot touch, see or
hear. I know this sounds absurd, maybe that is why it is so fascinating to
me.
