Artist Philosophy

I believe that Art is a celebration of the human condition; deeply intimate, personal, and yet universal.

A relationship develops between the subject, the artist, and most importantly you, the viewer. The subject, be it a moment in nature, a loved one, or even a concept, moves me with a feeling, an emotion, and it is this feeling I am attempting to convey in my paintings. When, for example, I see my own son Sam absorbed in some activity; looking for treasure, pulling a makeshift raft, or wrestling with homework, I am moved by a feeling of wonder and love. It is this feeling, necessarily personal and private, this silent bearing witness, that I believe is also universal, and shared with you, the viewer, to pick-up, to make your own, a departure for your own unique personal feelings.
