The mysterious passion some artists leave on a canvas, sculpture or even simple lined sketch has always intrigued me. Why do some people paint pictures, and others leave part of their soul on a piece? I have discovered that creativity originates in the primal part of the artist, the core of one’s being from which come hunger, breath and instinctive sense of the spiritual. I ask myself, “What can paint do?” rather than, “How do I paint?” I like the feeling of the panel against my fingers and often “finger paint”. I have moved away from canvas switching to rigid panel and abandoned gesso for the organic textures of Venetian plaster. The figure has become a recurring part of my compositions, and I assign priority to my intuition over reasoning. My intent is to convey subtle emotions and leave my presence on each piece.
Photography and painting are completely mated in my work. Paintings influence my photography and visa versa. I'm always looking for people to photograph for art work. If you're interested please contact me.
"Thus, what concerns us here is not imagination in itself, but rather creative imagination: the faculty that helps us pass from the level of conception to the level of realization."
