I do not wonder why I make art. I make art! Everyday, all day. I work into the evening full of thought, with the care of an artisan and the drive of a maniac. This frenzied production does not seem strange to me. I have lived the life of a working man for most of my years. As a plasterer or doing drywall, one does a large volume of physical work. Personally, art is not just a means of mental creativity and expression. My creations absorb my mind, body, and soul. The creative process involves intense physical and mental exertion. The life force that I impart into each creation is more important to me than the style.
