I have a philosophical interest in the topic of beauty. My drawings and paintings represent my unending appreciation for the beauty of nature, around and within each of us. Drawing and painting are passionate endeavors and, like having an insatiable sweet tooth, the more I learn to draw and paint, the more I need to. Acquiring a “front seat” when drawing or painting from life means being close enough to the mood and character of a subject for the experience to offer a direct and palpable felt-sense.
Still, observing from far enough away allows me to see the “whole picture” and the “whole experience" comes forward through the best work. I am endlessly excited by the process of learning and developing artistic skills. The experience of connection is implicit in each mark, insuring the work takes on a life of its own.
