Personally, art and the subsequent creative process has always been a vehicle to traverse from A to B. At times, this can entail dealing with an emotional disposition and attempting to produce a cathartic event both artistically and personally. Other times it can be as simple as wanting to immerse myself in the work of those who inspire me by recreating and reinterpreting their work. Sometimes it's just building myself a painting rack so my studio is maneuverable. Art, no more and no less than a way for me to engage, understand, and come to terms with the world I inhabit and the cards it deals.
