What I know...

Painting feeds me. Each canvas is a new affair full of promise. I'm informed by and drawn into each subject more profoundly as I paint than I was even at the point of inspiration. All images blossom into portraits before my eyes. I am held by metaphor.



What I'm learning...

There's something both elusive and illusive which I seek. This is sometimes what I think drives me...this voyage of discovery as I apply thin layers of paint, coupled with the sheer pleasure of observing emergence and change. The light and dark of life. Although there's comfort in knowing, my motivation seems often generated by some essence of what I do not know.



What is fact...

I began painting as a small child, encouraged by my father. I continue painting as an adult, fascinated by life. I am an artist. It is my hope that my work will cause its viewer to stop, look, feel and think.
