ARTIST STATEMENT

Art is in the process and the result
It is the process that enriches the artist
while the result affects the viewer

Art provides me an opportunity to meditate, to laugh and to experiment. Art is found in both the process and result. It is the process that enriches the artist while the result affects the viewer for better or worse. My work starts with a simple brush stroke, which evolves into a painting. Sometimes planned, but often appearing organically out of the process, whether meditating, playing, or just experimenting.
My paintings are consuming in nature, capturing space and demanding time. However, the time given to these works always rewards. If the result pleases the viewer, well, better still. My artistic philosophy is to create art that gives me pleasure in the doing, and to others in the viewing. I consider my work to be meditative and thought provoking.
