My thought is that I am an entertainer at heart. Rather than choosing the performing arts to entertain, I've chosen the visual arts. Without a doubt, my genre is drama. Even though my choice of subject matter is diverse, consistently my drawings and paintings will show conflicting forces between light and dark.
I am the director, my subject the actor and my paper the stage. My desire is to delight the eye by giving the viewer a lot to look at, rich in detail, rich in color and rich in expression. Without using words, without music and without being disturbed by movement, my actor commands attention. When the spotlight illuminates the actor, something in my painting will say, "Notice me. See how pretty the light says I am".
I can't help but have an impassioned experience with each painting or drawing that I do because I love both my craft and my subject. I love being lost in the process, engaged in an affair that occupies me fully. My work and my pleasure is to share that love with you.
