Artist statement: My inspiration for artistic expression, whether it involves painting, stage performance, music or any other artistic work, lies in the emotion of the moment both from a performer’s experience as well as an observer. Color, shape and form define my level of emotion. Joni Mitchell probably said it best for me…
“I am a lonely painter. I live in a box of paint. I’m frightened by the Devil and drawn to those ones who ain’t.” – Joni Mitchell
