What I love about art is it gives me a chance to take my imagination to its very limits and then beyond that. I become an explorer charting unexplored territory, which is why I work without outside infuences and begin by sitting in front of a blank piece of paper or a blank canvas and let my mind, imagination and spirit take me where it will.
