Artist Statement – Silence & Solitude
Silence and solitude is my best working environment. After years of being on the creative side of the advertising world, I wanted to take the skills and knowledge along with my Fine Arts background and apply it to my work. I enjoy putting my observation down on a single piece of paper. I like the uniqueness each effort brings. I struggle and I labor over each painting. It is a physical workout and mental challenge for me. It is not a simple task. I am motivated by unusual things, things we may take for granted. These quiet treasures need to have representation. They are my inspiration. I enjoy being immersed in the process. A finished piece is complete when I have reached a point of exhaustion and satisfaction.
