Artist's Statement

My goal in painting is to lift myself up to the beauty in life and magnify that beauty so that others will notice it.
When I paint I get into a state known as flow. Flow breaks stress better than anything else. For me it is strong enough that I forget everything else including time and space. Forgetting everything is one reason that I almost topple over backward at times as I am staring at a painting. I feel opened up to everything in the universe. The experience of art is, for me, transcendent.

Beauty is independent of perfection. This is true in people, in nature and in art. I hope by keeping imperfections in my work that I can re-focus people on how beautiful the world is with its organic nature, and despite its realities and imperfections.

What style of painting? My style may be described as painterly or abstraction, expressive, impressionistic, or naive. Beyond defined styles, I think of my painting as being spiritual, physical and organic. Everything that someone might call a mistake if they follow conventional rules, is considered on its own merit. If it ruins the painting, it gets painted out and if it enhances the painting it gets left in. Each painting is thus an experiment in creating beauty, with accompanying trials.

As a frail and hopeful individual, I use the medium of paint with its incredible textures and colors as a tool to create greater awareness, freedom and happiness in the world.

I want to share my art with others, whether it is having them view it or actually having them purchase a painting or reproduction to physically keep. I want to arouse, uplift and inspire, so if one of my paintings lifts you or causes you deep emotion, I am thrilled that it does.
