Artist Statement: 
My objective is to capture the spirit of the subject, keeping an open mind to the influences as they happen. My emotional response to a subject is carried through using strong color, in a non-objective manner, pushed to the edge of being expressionist.
While color is used to express the feelings, the physical presence  of texture is emphasized to enhance my compositional goals.
My work is somewhat non-representational with a link to the real world, which allows the viewer to personally interpret the piece… a collaborative experience.
