I have found the process of making a painting to be the most challenging, intimidating and rewarding process I have ever experienced. It requires that I dig deep within myself to find authenticity and honesty as I examine my ideas and concepts.
Fundamentally, I hope to create an ambiance that resonates beyond the primary image; specifically, I want my paintings to reflect a mood. Often it's a private moment or an intimate emotion. My hope is that the viewer connects with the story in the painting and finds something compelling – just as I did.
