Artist Statement

"My favorite medium is oil and landscapes fascinate me but my personality forces me to continuously stretch my wings and try new things. My subject determines my media. This is why I paint in oils, watercolor and acrylic. I want to experience the entire spectrum of creating art.
I am rarely totally satisfied with anything I do. I do not know if this is a good thing but I do believe it drives me to be a better painter. The turning point for me was when I started looking for composition and values in everything. Once I learned how to see as an artist, I started viewing the world and the people in it in a totally different way.
To me, painting is a solitary endeavor so when I paint I am in my own world and nothing else matters until I am finished. It is the one thing I can do that does not need require anyone else's approval. My paintings are based on internal thoughts and emotions felt at the time I saw that face, landscape or a beautiful flower. Composition, color hue, media and painting style all set the scene for me to try to translate that moment to the viewer. I do not know if I am always successful, but I will never stop trying."
