"My aim is to create deeply personal work that speaks about the soul of America.
I have spent a great deal of time on the road. The paintings I make are distilled from that experience. Although there is an aspect of cultural anthropology in my work, I have to feel a profound personal connection with my subject.
This emotional response is what I try to convey through my paintings. I’m seeking to evoke a certain mood through the limitations of paint."
