Artist Statement



My life is all about process. Itís the getting there that interests me. My art is similar in that I like the process of making something from nothing. Iíve spent years landscaping and building a cabin in the woods, as well as doing artwork, and I love taking a bare piece of nothingness and making it something, walk away and donít look back. I strive for a nice finished product, but itís the getting there that keeps me going.

Iím not interested in pretty. Be real. Painting is paint on a surface. Any materials, for that matter, have their own essential being, and bring that spirit to the work. I look for that material to speak to me, say something to the viewer, and say whatever it wants. My work is mostly figure ground relationships. Iíve been drawn to the figure all my life.

Iím interested in the drama of life and living, and the endless possibilities of the interaction or isolation we encounter. Iím not looking to represent surface reality, but rather emotional or spiritual reality. I want to get under the skin and see whatís going on. I like to represent that with whatever materials Iím using.
