ARTIST STATEMENT

I paint out of a deep compulsion to create. Oil painting has allowed me to satisfy that need in a most beautiful manner, in the process delighting others and myself. I am constantly amazed at how oil paints can be used to create such beauty.

As a young adult, I was exposed to still life paintings that enchanted me with their chiaroscuro compositions and the richness and luminosity of the paints. Further study revealed to me that oil paints and the correct medium would allow me to achieve the high degree of refinement and luminosity that I was seeking in my finished works, whether floral, still life, or landscape.

I select subjects to paint that will continue to challenge my technical skills and artistic insight. Since the creative process requires venturing into the unknown, I always approach a painting with a certain excitement and expectation of creating a work of great and lasting beauty. Sometimes, I surprise myself.
