seriousness and offbeat humor that is also expressive in the study of movement and human emotions.

Art Statement

I try to keep my approach simple and paint, what interest and inspires me, which are various people,
places and things. My overall goal has always been to have my body of work become a
reflection of that. Collectively they all are in a way still lifes of my journey and life
experiences, I strongly feel that all inspired art should contain little glimpses of the mind.
I think the actual birth of a new idea/creation can be just as exciting as the completion of that
very same idea. To me the idea of being in front of an empty paper/canvas with the possibility
to forge and create something new, is really special and unique to me. There are so many
possibilities, the themes and directions in which one can go, they are truely infinite. Trying out
new styles, techniques & color schemes. I find myself constantly adjusting, changing approaches
to this ever evolving craft. I genuinely love that aspect of it more than anything. After dozens and
dozens of paintings I still really enjoy the rush and creative angst I get sitting in front of a blank
canvas thinking of a theme and forging something unique.'
