ARTIST STATEMENT


Painting is about design and surface tension and emotional impact. It is about conflicting influences. It is about balancing spontaneity with skillful integrity, complexity with clarity. It is a constant dance, balancing illusion with the reality to be created.

My paintings, even my landscapes, are ultimately about people. I attempt to look beyond the surface of what is and capture not only the image but the truth and emotional impact of that image. I want every painting to find its own way, wherein I'm acting almost as a facilitator rather than an actor. When this honesty occurs, the painting is not only about what the eye sees, but, more significantly, it is about what the heart feels.
