"I have been painting since I was a child. Every idea, set of marks, system of formal generation that was once investigated remains in the toolbox of my mind to be pulled out later, reexamined, worked over, and built upon. The movements of my hand are rehearsed a million times. Over time, the steadiness is replaced with a slight tremor that becomes another tool in eliciting response. I intend the paintings to reflect my earlier thoughts, patterns, imagery, antecedents, contemporary culture, my understanding of human response, and my intentions of the moment and each moment during the processes I went through to generate them."
