"I had often thought painting would be a good outlet for me. It was not until I learned a sober way of living that I took pigment to canvas. Regardless of how it looks at the end of the day, the action of painting is a major reason for my continued serenity and sobriety. The meditative process of my work precludes anything else in my surroundings."
