Artist Statement -

Four years ago I wrote: “I feel better when I paint. Period.” My sentiment has not changed one bit.

I am motivated by this unquenchable thirst for learning, for change, for newness. Although change is often discomforting, I know the secret to my personal happiness is constant change. I do not do well sitting idle. Painting and creating are the tools I depend upon which guarantee my changing, evolving, and progressing as a human being.

On the surface, I continue to be inspired mainly by color, which I take full advantage of with my palette. On the subsurface, I wish to convey truth and honesty in my work – through my interpretation of whatever the subject matter may be. These are vague terms appropriately describing intangibles. Discovering the essence of things is my passion - putting it on canvas is MY essence.
