Artist Statement

I live to draw, paint and sculpt.  It is my way to explore the human condition – our connection to each other, to self, to nature, to the unseen realms lurking behind the perceived.  Being a representational artist allows me to pay attention and to bring attention to what may seem ordinary but which in truth is extraordinary.  I work almost exclusively from direct observation, favoring vivid hues and strong compositional elements.  I seek the emotive and confrontational, the up close and intimate, in my images.  I let the image drive me, not the other way around.  Wonder and the understanding of it through visual concentration is a great catalyst for joy in and reverence for our world.  I invite you to connect with my work.
