A strong, persistent yearning or desire, especially one that cannot be fulfilled

as humans we all long for a connection, to be part of a whole. whether in friendship, romance or family, we are looking for a frequency that matches our own. in my paintings and mixed media pieces i find that connection invariably through words; lyrics or narratives that flow and weave themselves into images. at other times it’s in a face that i can’t let go of and begs to be reproduced or better yet altered, to create an identity that is lurking beneath the one presented. i long to create images that capture a feeling, a passion, a moment. i use materials that allow me to be as detailed as possible when i want to and some that take me on their own journey.
take the ride with me - it’s not always pretty, but it’s always interesting.
