I observe, and participate in, the change of hues. I stand alone in a perspective–influenced by the roads and detours that I’ve chosen. The subjects I interpret on canvas dance with tradition, but underneath exists an individual search for freedom.
As a creator, I’ve always been interested in working with color. I see my life as having a palette of it’s own and I seek to have the chroma of my experience come through in my paintings. Over time, I’ve realized the only way to achieve this goal is to risk exposure–to unveil my simplified forms to the viewer. Whether the forms operate within the context of landscape or still life, the resulting narrative is always a story of merit, without regard for public perception or understanding.
I relate to the idea that my life is like a work of art or a painting. In many ways it is a journey of discovery and an on going lesson in perspective and relationships that is full of color, texture and value. There are ups and downs as well as turns and twists which is similar to how I might move my paintbrush. As I step back I am reminded that it always is an engaging adventure that challenges my imagination and frequently opens my heart to possibilities and believing in dreams.
