ARTIST'S STATEMENT
 
Creation is not God, but creation is not mute and proclaims the hand of its' designer.  From it, I am inspired to paint the eloquent color, texture, and forms of nature.  With the universe at my disposal for subject matter, some culling must take place.  So, I chase chickens in Key West to capture on film the moment the sun illuminates the feathers.  I sift through images sent to me from an arsenal of photographer friends, looking for a composition or expression that arrests me.  I hike, canoe, and observe faces and flowers as planes of stained light, distracted with the thought of what color I would use to capture them, always pushing the color, just a bit.  This is where images become unique art, a rendering, something more than just a reproduction.  I have always enjoyed being outside and marveling at God's immeasurable creativity and design.  Formal art training teaches you to look at things more closely, really see the nuances of color, shape, and composition - and marvel all the more.  To translate the expression of a living thing onto a flat surface takes my breath away.  To swim in a sea of blues and greens as I make water appear on canvas is thrilling.  Creation is the instrument on which God plays His tune.  I listen, in awe, and interpret with paint.
