Artist Statement

To quote one of my favorite painters, Milton Avery, “Why talk when you can paint?”  This expresses my feelings about my work.  Art to me is like the unknown.  When I face a blank canvas I am never sure of the direction I will be going in.  My experience is one of anticipation, excitement and a little bit of anxiety mixed in.  Once I begin, the anxiety disappears and the exhilaration begins.  I feel as though I am on a journey of beautiful colors, shapes and emotions.  I lose myself in the experience, and the painting and I become one.  When one of my works is completed, I bask in it for a while and then its time to move on.  You are only as good as your last painting.  The need to create is very powerful.  Without it, there is a void and a feeling of loss.
