ARTIST’S STATEMENT

 

Putting paint on canvas is everything to me. The images I make in oil paint are my ambassadors of love, honor and respect for all life. The surface of the canvas is the focal point of my hopes, dreams, aspirations. It is that precise place in the physical world where I express my deepest passions for the beauty of this Earth. Communicated through the layers of ground-up minerals are images that bring honor and respect to the lionhearted individuals who serve others, extolling the virtues of ordinary people who deliberately put themselves into extraordinary circumstances.
