Painting is my addiction. It is something that I am naturally drawn to and as essential and simple as breathing to me.
There are two fundamental elements which I strive for with each and every one of my paintings. The first is a solid foundation in draftsmanship, color and composition. The second is being able to express and communicate my feelings with each piece.
My urge to capture an emotion starts with a “spark”. It may be as simple as a tree against a blue sky or a rock lying on the ground, but there is certainly something there that ignites and captures my attention. I am fascinated by color and light and the way light describes forms. I can see my painting in my mind’s eye before laying down the first stroke. When I lay down my last stroke, I know that I have accomplished to capture that mood which I had initially visualized.
Being able to convey my emotions through my paintings gives me a sense of creative freedom and fulfillment. It allows me to share with others what touches me, what inspires me and what moves me.
