Artist Statement

My painting "Spatterdock, Lake Ray" was done on location at an event. It is representational to a given moment in time. Blessed with an undeniable connection to the past through my studies, I have adapted a strong sense of the aesthetics. My motivation is people and nature: I have a strong will to preserve what is ours for future generations. I love experimenting with color, shapes and texture.... and most of all I love working quickly and spontaneously. I believe three qualities should be evident in each painting...The artist’s intelligence, intuition and how the artist interprets and creates into their own unique impression.
