“From the beginning of my obsession with drawing, I have been fascinated by transformational qualities of light and distance. Whether I am studying a large body of water shot through with sunlight or rain on a car windshield reflecting the glimmer of adjacent neon signs, I am always looking to catch the mystery of these completely real distortions. This is what interests me when I look at the world. No matter what the subject matter or what the degree of complexity in the composition, I never tire of the challenge of articulating the fluidity I see all around me.”

The truth is that there are a lot of people like you, us, with strange hobbies or talents or gifts and we try to hide it because we’re afraid that it makes us seem weird or it will turn people off, but that’s a mistake. What makes me unique has brought every person I love into my life.

They came because after all these years, they were no longer just neighbors.
