Artist Statement

The poetry of a line

The musical composition of certain color combinations

Attempting to capture these elusive elements…or set them free…

Is as pointless as trying to make sense of love

But we must try…

Or as artists…we die.

It begins with a flicker of emotion

In my mind swirling colors and spinning thoughts embrace and dance

To become one

Fascination with observations of both human and animal

Pureed in a cosmic blender

Liquefied to simplistic irony…for aren’t we all beasts at our base

A visceral reaction to my world…a feeling…a fleeting thought…

An entire theory…

I display in duality my strength…my vulnerability

I exhibit my best side…the side wielding pencil or brush

I hope that you enjoy, feel and possibly understand…

Not only the intricate yet often random workings of

My heart…

My soul…

My mind…

But also that you may obtain a divine manual

To help you decipher the delicate machinery that makes up who you are

Who are you?

Only you can answer

I combine and create to learn more of myself

For art is my struggle

Painting is my salvation.
