Statement

Some people believe that paintings have meanings.  Although I employ images from cartoons, animals, and objects in my work, I do not believe in creating a specific narrative.

Instead I am sensitive to the charge or implication imagery lends to the painting’s surface.   Currently I am using cartoon characters and other media images to conjure up new and old observations of the familiar.

I am inspired by our experiences with life and mortality.

Paintings are like walls.  They remind me of the places I’ve lived around.  Their surfaces recall kitchens, bedrooms, and backyards.

I believe that we possess more than five senses and  I’m convinced these extra perceptional senses allow us to create and digest art.  If there is a message in my painting, it’s that I’m not sure of anything and I’m okay with it.
