primarily, my goal is to have an intimate conversation with the viewer. distance, light, color and texture are very important elements which i achieve through several applications of surface structure and layers of glazes. the use of burlap is representational of the underlying fabric of time, often juxtaposed to the visual reference to the infinite within the horizon. i strive to create artwork that, in addition to being aesthetically pleasing, is also infused with energy; conveying both simplicity and profundity simultaneously.

these inspired images, which are highly symbolic, ultra personal, and occasionally self-portrayals hold deep within them sacred principles. they often signify potential, birth, and nourishment of spirit. they express compassion for the pain, conflict and isolation inherent in our humanity. but most notably, they share man’s precious and universal sentiments of hope, perseverance, brotherhood and peace.
