Artist Statement

I have always been drawn to the emotional power that color and images afford the artist. Artists such as Cezanne, van Gogh and Matisse inspired me to see color in a new way. Pointillism and the optical blending techniques of Seurat have always fascinated me. My earliest works were devoted to exploring the challenges inherent in rendering images that evoke a particular emotional response. Over time however I grew weary of the limitations imposed by a single viewpoint in my paintings. I began to search for ways to incorporate multiple images and perspectives in my works. This approach allowed me the freedom to walk the fine line between figurative and abstract images. As time progressed I became more involved with digital imaging and the possibilities that digital painting software provides. Multiple images and perspectives provide me with unlimited creative possibilities. The latest focus of my work involves creating an image of an idea related to the work of great thinkers and spiritual teachers. Eckhardt Tolle, Robert Campbell, Albert Einstein just to name a few. The images that I create strive to give life and energy to their words.
