Artist Statement Submitted 2014
The most fulfilling and accessible way to appreciate art is to stand in awe before a work crafted from the foundational principles used by the masters. My approach to learning the fundamentals of all aspects of painting and drawing is based on the acquisition of knowledge. Making the effort to learn as much as is available from the time tested methods of past master artists is the best way to create a work of art that embodies beauty, expert craftsmanship, and that magical something that holds your attention. I employ the high principles of those masters to create my unique works. This allows for a perfect marriage of the traditional and contemporary and leaves you with something you can understand. Diligence in training, love of the craft, and the never ending pursuit of perfect beauty are the cornerstones.
