I have been a sketcher and mechanical engineer for years….. i use paint and different mediums to map to my field vision and I like to discover how paint interacts and moves to my emotions…  Art is really a portal for us all to escape to:  My goal when i paint is to feel the rhthym and ingest the rhthym that the canvas is giving me, it is really a bilateral experience for me.  I try to get lost in the painting and find my way back out..

…as things become more and more virtual and computer driven, we need to keep our physical abstraction still primal and raw.
