Artist Statement Submitted 2016

Art should inspire. Whether it be by observing the way something is created or subject matter, perhaps both, the viewer should be inspired to wonder, laugh, think or even pursue their own creative endeavor. While I use the very traditional medium of oil painting, I strive to present images that are both unique and thought provoking, sometimes with a humorous twist. Art, for me, is a never ending, fully engrossing exploration of ideas, techniques and subject matter. Each painting is a marker I leave behind on that journey.
