Biography


What attracts a person to a scene? Its light? Its composition? Its character? Or is it something more, something hidden?
 
Painting, for me, goes beyond a process of representing visual perceptions on a canvas. It is a way of communicating my response to the perceptual moment, not simply of seen shapes and colors, but to what exists to make that scene stand above all others. My paintings strive to reveal what is unseen, to move the emotions of the viewer and suggest ideas, awaken emotions and discover truths both uplifting and noble. 
 
To paint is to communicate my emotions to others. To have my art touch the core of my work’s viewers means I have conveyed an emotion suggesting the human condition, and in doing so have succeeded as an artist.
