Storytelling is an integral part of the artist’s journey. Each painting is an event, something the individual viewer can interpret and complete. My focus is communicating the start of a story, whatever it may be, and having the viewer approach, absorb and engage the piece. I use various artifacts viewers can relate to and personalize based on their life experiences, which makes the connection between canvas and people. Common themes appear in my art – all relating to the human condition from unique perspectives. Loss, time spent, joy, memories are part of that human experience. I approach each canvas as an expression of those experiences. My technique varies depending on subject matter – sometimes it is loose splashing paint across the piece or it can be tight when constructing a moment in time. Both techniques derive their content from a deep psychological perspective and my objective is for each piece to resonant with the viewer as it does with me.
