My art is a way of expressing my muted emotions that words would otherwise dilute. My visual expressions are borne out of emotional conflictions that lessen during the creation process. For the most part, the expressions are produced without paint brushes, or pencils; they are usually sketched by rubbing my fingers in charcoal, and dipping my hands, fingers, or fingernails in acrylic; and then marrying them with the canvas. The literal "hands-on" method builds an intimate connection between my images and me. I give them life; they give me voice.

Art as a way of knowing
I find myself once distracted from writing my dissertation proposal. I've decided to use my art in my dissertation as a vehicle of understanding. Although my art tends to be on the more dismal side of the emotional spectrum, it chronicles points in time in my recent life. Expressionistic art doesn't concern itself with aesthetics...thank God! ;-) It focuses more on conveying meaning of emotions, providing subjective interpretations to what is seen. The goal when I'm creating is barometric. My art is my town crier. There are some wounds that sit so deep they leave you speechless; that's where the canvas comes in. Most often, artist create from caverns nestled deep within the heart where truth dwells. So, although my art is sad(ish), my art is truth.
