Artist Statement

 

     I'm one of the lucky ones. I knew what I wanted to do at a very early age. The "fire of desire" began to burn at age five. As far as I can remember, I always liked to work with my hands, creating things to entertain myself. In a short time I realized others enjoyed my work and sharing my skills (teaching) became a large part of my life. My work is always maturing and evolving. I'm always looking for new media to try a different twist. Something out of the ordinary.

     My  artistic response is an immediate tour de force expressive reaction to my subject matter. Whether 2D or 3D, the power of the moment is what drives the creative process. The brushwork is confident, sure and deliberate. Nothing is wasted or extraneous. In more involved work it's hard to pace myself, the creative voice comes out more sporadically than a steady stream. Everything fascinates me, I love to read, visit museums, film and observations of life. Information is the fodder that becomes the meat of self expression.

     Our life experiences become the defining moments in the quest to reach the inner core of the viewer. The artists definitive moment becomes the fuel, in the vehicle of self expression, on the road to the viewers, psyche. If I have touched the heart or moved the soul, I have accomplished what I set out to do. I am merely the conduit. For God both creates the subject and stirs the soul to its interpretation..
