My dreams are often the prompting to explore a new idea or place. From there I stumble upon synchronistic symbols and events. The symbols and events help me to build on an idea for a painting. The painting is not the end all of my search, it is a byproduct of the search. The relevance that takes place is the transformation within myself during my search for meaning. Old architecture and ruins very often trigger, in me, something that goes back to Madrid, when I first had a spiritual experience of being an artist at age 12. As a result, I am constantly photographing inspiration from architecture, with the idea to use it for paintings in the future.
