Statement

Many people have asked me to categorize my work. This is difficult for me to do because I work very hard at being as unique a voice as possible. I am often times described as "POP" but I do not think this is correct. I am a reductionist so, my work tends to have a graphic feel. I am also a color theorist who uses a bold palette of primary, secondary and intermediate colors. This alone does not define Pop art. I am schooled in the classic traditions and philosophies of my passion however, as an artist I identify the most with the impressionistic period. I Strive for depth and humanity with each piece, inviting the viewer to participate in my discoveries and explorations of the universal themes that govern our lives. It's the difference between speaking and being articulate and ultimately, my attempt is to create an after image that lingers in the viewers mind.
 
I call this style: Pop Impressionism. "Pop," in this case, being a verb.
