Artist Statement

I have been making art since I was quite young. Over time, the process has become a tool of communication, and brought with it growth in myself, in my faith in a higher power, and in my place in the world. Commitment to being an artist has come to me gradually, but that has allowed me to better understand its significance in my life. 

Each painting lives inside me until it flows out onto the canvas. I have found that my approach or perspective to a painting has a direct influence on the eventual outcome. This makes me remain focused and in the moment, but also requires my willingness to release all my expectations of the actual resolution of the painting. I have come to understand that if I remain in this state of awareness, then the painting will gradually transition from my inner being and that my hands and the tools I use to create will be the conduit for its emergence.

As I begin a painting, lines, form, and color start to evolve and I find myself part of a complex dialogue. This is a fascinating place for me, an open door for me to walk through and become part of the exploration. The intuitive nature of the process, the risk-taking, break-throughs, and even the mistakes, serve to bring interest and new facets to the process.

I have found that each painting has its own message. For the message and the imagery to correctly manifest itself, I must let go completely of my own thoughts and expectations and allow the heart to paint. This is a personal place for me, and always brings me a sense of knowing and confidence in the certainty of the true outcome.

This place where only the painter and the painting exist is one I strive to remain immersed in throughout the creation of an artwork. It brings me a sense of inner focus, and with it, the singular harmony of this unique creative dialogue.
