Artist Statement

Not another artist statement! I’m sure if Van Gogh had to write one of these he would have ended his life much sooner.

My work has taken many paths and continues to branch off in ever more diverse directions. Discipline and imagination are two very different parents. My imaginings are endless. Yielding to discipline is required to bring some of the ideas into full fruition.

I prefer not to influence a viewer with too much of my experience. When there is a visual or visceral connection to my work I am certain that is where the relationship should start. The context of its origins and my relationship must be secondary. Visual art is a universal voice.  It is a primal and important conversation where words and the left side of the brain need to stand down.
