A Hastonian, currently living in Turkey. I paint, among other things. Sometimes this is a relaxing and fluid process, sometimes it's me banging around at 4 am muttering to myself and throwing things across the studio in a fit of frustration. Painting isn't my only artistic outlet as I also write, which as anyone who has ever written anything knows, has it own pitfalls. I do take pleasure in the things that I do, and painting is no exception. I am not really painting for an audience, rather I am painting for myself, my feelings, my obsessions, my interests. There is some degree of catharsis in most of my works, in fact that is possibly my main motivation. Painting has become a great way to calm my somewhat excessive nature.
