I seem to have spent my life moving between the worlds of music and art;

never settling in one place or one medium.


Always working in one world or the other, however rarely in conjunction.


They both take too much energy to work in unison.


As with music, images come at unexpected moments like a voice or a vision, suddenly there with me.


A silent moment that can turn into a tornado of creative bliss and torment.


Sometimes images pour so fast that I am left with a confused canvas that will wrench at my mind, screaming for resolve.


There is a point when things become clear and a intense feeling of deep joy fills my being.


This is usually followed by doubt and paranoia and a overwhelming 

desire 

to 

destroy 

everything.




...The work that escapes this phase is the 113% result you see.
