2009 - Present
There is a power and satisfying feeling of creating images that evoke emotions or reactions, and I strive to produce works that evoke curiosity, empathy, and the commonality of everyday life.
My style over the years has ranged from photo-realism to loose and painterly; however, the old masters of oil speak loudly to me and are where I feel most at home, artistically. I look for candid moments of life, especially quirky moments of childhood. If I can capture and convey hidden beauty that is often overlooked, or a point-of-view that is unique or quirky, that feeling of ‘power of creation with intent' brings satisfaction and renewed awareness of my abilities as an artist. I am always learning and striving toward a higher level, and a deeper understanding of the world we live in.
