My art is an expression of both my observations and an emotional spiritual response to the world around me. When I paint, be it the human form or landscape, I am always striving to capture the “inner” life of my subject. Although my technique is deeply rooted in the traditional classical style as was my formal education, my approach to the subject begins on a very visceral level always seeking that which one cannot merely observe with the eye, but what lies beneath.
Art, unlike today’s snapshot lifestyle, requires the viewer to take pause for more than 10 seconds. My goal is to draw the viewer in and perhaps evoke an emotional response.
I hope that you the viewer stop for a while, to feel what I have shown you and draw something for yourself.
