I find painting a very hypnotic activity with self initiating qualities. My inspiration for painting follows my research into non ordinary states of awareness. My visual compositions develop while I’m painting. Any kind of groundwork to a painting for me is often an associative trip into the collective unconsciousness. I get disappointed if I’m not surprised by what I create. I like finding out about my mind while painting. My concern with beauty is channeled more into copper enamel jewelry I make for GypsyMoonDesigns. I live and work in Wild Horse Plains, Montana with my wife.
