Artist Statement

Thank you for visiting my portfolio. As far as a brief background, I was an Art major at SBVJC, I then did frelance work for a couple of national magazines and was the Creative Art Director for Robert Keith and Co.

The bottom line that matters here is whether you derive pleasure from my work or not.

Those of you that do not. That is fine. Diversity is what makes life such a glorious experience. Keep looking! There is an artist out there whose work will stir a pleasure center in you like no other.

Those of you that do find some degree of enjoyment in my work confirm my belief that we as humans really do enjoy life when we “Stop long enough to smell the roses”. Everything in our world is exquisitely beautiful when we take the time to fully relish it in minute detail.

When I paint it is solely for egocentric pleasure. The hyper realism of my work reflects my delight in discovering even the smallest nuance of my subject matter. I consume my subject visually, savoring it like a fine wine. My eyes become my palate, tasting even the subtlest of changes in textures and lighting. These paintings are the product of my most selfish and exquisite indulgence of this wonderful existence. I did not paint these paintings for anyone’s approval or with a competition in mind.

Each painting is a composite of many hours of intimate examination. Each painting is my sharing of the beauty and pleasure I discover within each subject.

I try to impart a tension in each work that makes it feel a little larger than life. I strive to create the feeling that the frame around each work may not be able to contain the subject of the painting. The frame becomes a portal to a world of hyper-reality, n opening through which the image may pass through and invade your space and time.

Those of you that find enough of your own selfish enjoyment from my work to invest in it, have my very special gratitude. You are a kindred spirit, I applaud your appreciation of the life-experience. Your investment in my work makes it possible for me to continue the hedonistic delight I derive from painting so that you and others may celebrate with me the pleasure that exists all around us.
