"Art manifests as an expression of who the artist is, of what the artist wants to share and how the audience responds to the work. Art is an expression of experiences, places the artist has traveled to and hopes to visit - physically, mentally, emotionally and metaphorically.
Art uses craft through which the artist attempts to convey history, memories, goals, beliefs and emotion, deliberately depicted or subtly suggested.
Painting is the means I have to share these things and experience them more profoundly and wholly both through the work itself and through the impression the works make on the viewer. I may research my subjects in a way so that I feel I better understand the subject and express through the work not only my understanding of and appreciation for the subject, but present the viewer with work that also expresses the importance I attach to the subject.
With each new piece I create, I am challenged to go beyond and reach new levels of my own understanding and meld my relationship to the subject, the craft and and the interaction the viewer has with the work."
