statement

Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.


I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.


At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.



Not all of it is pretty.

Magic Fish

39" x 32"

acrylic/canvas

This one has been dying to be finished.....

It started with a glimpse of everyday life,  and ended here.
 I rarely begin with a sketch on any of my paintings.......so the canvas must bare the brunt of the creative process, but I'm pretty happy with it. no holes or tears, and after my trip to Canada, and all the crazy busy stuff going on. I was finally able to finish it.
