"The original working title for my book was 'Jazzing the modern medium', because my experience and approach to acrylics was and continues to be about improvisation. Stretching and splattering it outside the bounds of the formal and the normal."
"When I have the time to paint, quiet my mind and open into creative articulation, it is my tools that take me there. The architecture of the each piece becomes dictated by a blurry mixture of form and design, wrapped up in the physical aspects of the acrylic medium."
"When I teach and when I paint, I hope to inspire unfettered expression. Encourage artists to experience, not just use, their materials; get sticky in it, and find the joy in the process before getting hung up on end product."
