Artist Statement

Working primarily with acrylic paint on canvas, I like to focus on contemporary artwork expressed with interesting combinations of shape, color, and texture. I am equally as comfortable painting a landscape as I am creating an abstract. When I begin a painting, I view it as a puzzle that needs solving and the best solution for each one differs. My objective is not to capture an exact physical likeness, but to aim for an emotional experience. I attempt to get past the mechanics used to reproduce a subject and instead capture the essence.

Creativity is the train that pulls my work, and the development of my art involves serendipity as I endeavor to create a visual story rather than reproduce what can be accomplished with a camera. When beginning a painting, I view it as uncharted territory with no road map – only potential options and choices that offer challenges where the journey many times becomes more important than the destination. I view my life and my art as a path of self-discovery.
