Artist Statement

“I continue to evolve, what I paint and why, are moving targets for me and I find myself wondering what I will see next. I couldn’t have imagined that I would relate to the clouds along the horizon or to the skulls on the fence posts but I do. They are both symbolic of changes, whether a storm is rising and there is a change of season or if a life has been lived to it’s fullest and death has become the next chapter. If I’m honest, I feel like I’m just barely starting to understand the ‘why’.”
