Artist Statement

"My goal is to say as much as I can about my subject without saying it all so that it leaves the viewer to become an integral part of the painting. Much of my work is done in series, working in this manner allows me to explore my subject on a more personal level. Through my watercolours I hope to create a feeling of strength and solidity in design, content and paint quality. In my compositions I am more aware of the formal aspects of design. Although a feeling or emotion toward a subject may be the impetus for my paintings it is the interaction between shapes and spatial relationships that emanate energy within the two dimensional surface that are of primary concern. Much more than technique, it is how we interpret our own personal vision through our medium that elevates an ordinary subject into a work of art. I feel strongly in the versatility and flexibility of the medium and go to great lengths to push the medium in directions that may not be considered characteristic to traditional watercolor".
