This space - the website, the blog (or journal, as I refer to it here) - has been a long time in the making. Journalling and sketchbooking are integral to my process, and I wanted to create a more virtual place to express my thoughts and feelings relating to art.

For me, painting and writing are congruent; each are meditative, each take time. They both provide a place to express thoughts, unfinished or fully realized. The two work as one to define form and understanding within the sphere of abstraction.

Sharing publicly has never been a comfortable thing for me (aside from my Live Journal, many many years ago). I created my Instagram account nearly ten years ago and it lay untouched for a majority of that time. I only started sharing my work relatively recently, and the support has been quite overwhelming.

Iā€™m unsure of the direction in which this journal will grow, and that is what makes it so exciting. It takes the same form as my paintings - always moving, always exploring. A place to be raw and real and discover little moments of controlled chaos. Somewhere for me to archive my journey, and to share it with whomever is interested.
