The genesis of my artwork always originates from an initial concept. It might be a tree, a figure, or even a simple apple that sparks my creative journey. Other times, I seek to transform a rejected piece into something remarkable. Occasionally, a unique idea emerges, like the fusion of collage and watercolor to craft a mesmerizing seascape.

Yet, regardless of the initial notion, the pivotal aspect lies in how I respond once the paint touches the canvas. Art hinges on our ability to engage with the visual world before us, embracing the present moment rather than adhering to preconceived ideas. - Robert Joyner
