ARTIST STATEMENT

My true passion is the creative process. It is that special time between the spark of inspiration and the completed piece that marks both reality and total immersion. The end product becomes a physical manifestation of this creative process that has the ability to stir something deep within us with its mysterious beauty.

Art, harmony and peace, these are the driving forces in my current body of work. My present technique consists of multiple layers of paint, polymers and resins, often embossing the metals and infusing interesting objects between layers. I have given myself the challenge of creating a rich glowing surface that draws you in with its internal energy, texture and colors. The luminous surface radiates the inner glow of the human soul as it weaves relationships with self, the environment and the world as symbols of our existence. I call it "Living Art", for the images glow and change depending from where one views the artwork.
