About the Artist

Artist Statement

Like a journalist, I look for the slant in which the important elements of a painting can be woven together into a cohesive and meaningful story. Each work is a decision making process with preliminary drawings and color studies to resolve the composition, design, technique, and even style choices so that the essential ideas of the painting are more clearly communicated. In each painting, there is an invitation for the viewer to enter into the scene and linger without editorial.
