I write because there are too many thoughts running around in my head. Letting them out makes me feel better. Writing according to a specific format (plays, screenplays, articles) adds logic to the process. It’s always weird wondering if something I write will be as stirring as what I paint. Previously, painting always had the upper hand. No pun intended.

My 'kid' comes out to play. I have a different set of questions about charming and absurd things that I stumble across. Pictures pop into my head at three A.M. With both art and illustration, I end up painting my questions, occasionally an answer or two.
