The Artist Says:


"I have combined my classical influence with the freedom of my spontaneous compositions and figures. Blending these flowing compositions with refined detail has become nothing short of exhilarating for me as an artist."




Biography


Statement
 
My series of paintings in monumental format is a specialty of painting I grew to love as a result of my study in Germany. Having been classically trained, I was equipped to move into a freer sort of painting that enabled spontaneity in the form and anatomy of the figures, vegetation, and the rich fabrics and patterns, all of which evolve as I work. I emphasize movement and intense color while maintaining the planned order necessary to create complicated compositions. I especially enjoy painting narratives that weave a harmony between the Old and New Testament Scriptures.
 
My art studies were in three schools that embraced three totally different philosophies of working. My earliest study was at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, and  the Art Institute of Chicago. At the first school I learned to paint, at the second I learned to think more deeply about my painting as it related to the history of art in the centuries before me. At my third school, the State Academy of Fine Art in Karlsruhe, Germany, I combined my classical influence with the freedom of my spontaneous compositions and figures. Blending these flowing compositions with refined detail has become nothing short of exhilarating for me as an artist.
 
It is my desire to draw my viewers into the beauty of a colorful composition as though they were entering a new world. It is also my passion to share an ancient faith in a fresh and vibrant way, displaying a part ancient, part future story, wherein we dwell somewhere between, with our lives connected to the entire narrative.
