"I fell in love with drawing and painting in college and have over the years sought out artistic knowledge and experience wherever I could get it. I didn't necessarily set out to become an 'artist.' I just know that when I am behind an easel, I'm happier with a sense of my life holding together in a more integrated balanced way. I find this balance exploring the grid, enjoying the tension between the organic sensitivity and fluidity of the line as it intersects the more rigid and predictable horizontals and verticals."
