ARTIST STATEMENT

My progression as an artist reveals an arc from sculpture, to three-dimensional mixed media, to painting. By using palette knives only, I’m able to more successfully apply texture, form, light and shadow. These “landscapes” are created by drawing from both internal and external influences; they are mere essences of an experienced moment in time, a thought, a dream, a place, or completely intentional expressions of form, time, and space. All are expressions of growth.
