I create these pieces in a quite inhospitable environment (not by choice) so there is tension, violence, psychotic excitement, mixed with a plethora of other emotions…. thoughts and theories…most extremely sensually unhealthy…living between the friction of life. My studio is an old garage void of ventilation, windows, heat, or air condition. I spend 50 to 100 hours a week in this environment depending on project deadlines. Each moment I spend in my studio reminds me that failure is not an option. I know that the extremes of my creative environment have a major influence on my color choices. The isolation and darkness of my studio begs me to be as bright as possible in my art, with harmony and dissonance a constant companion.
