"In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."
-- Albert Camus

"The limitlessness of what we exist to experience is both terrifying and awe-inspiring. For me, the act of painting is a collaboration: a duet to play with the universe. It is to draw from the vastness of experience and personal meaning, and to try and distill from this something harmonious. To make sense of an unsettling awareness of the rooms behind closed doors within our own consciousness that represent the unrealized selves we also innately are."
