Artist's Statement

I am an artist because to be anything else would be untrue.  Through my art I hope to bring awareness to situations in the world which are not always so easy to talk about or even read about.  I enjoy also taking themes from the past and working them in a new and exciting way, a way in which people have never seen before.

When I create my art, I always see the images in all dimensions in my mind.  Every piece takes hours of thoughtfulness and consideration so that the art can tell a story and give the viewer a journey through a world created in a single piece.  Some concepts for work can be inspired from the weather or song, and then the ideas flow easily. Other works are themes which can require days of research, and investigation of symbols, history and literature.

When I first started seriously as an artist, I didn’t trust myself beyond a white sheet of paper and a black marker.  I created my first works on the basis of my black and white checkered pattern.  Over the years I discovered my love of colors and through much trial and error eventually developed the technique of “surreallations”. It is my own way of creating the illusion of depth and movement in a piece.  All my works today are carefully developed using a variety of tools and different mediums in order to perfect this technique.  However, in nearly every work I create you can still find the original black and white checkered pattern which was the seed from which my art has grown.
