Artist Statement

“My art is expression of pure emotion. Form, function were abandoned and instead decisions were made based on feeling, based on a long sought complete vision.  From this experience, my style emerged, and I have gone on to paint dozens upon dozens, and continue to grow and expand this emotional expressionism.  That said, the process is lengthy and cerebral in that I must feel out many layers of fabrics, plaster, paints, glosses in the appropriate orders and ways to allow the drips and pours, splatters and movements to evoke the original emotional vision in my mind perfectly.  Each, expresses but a piece of much larger visions I hope to evoke emotional response in the viewer - though they may not see the vision in my mind, I hope they have their own in response to each piece."
