I find it amusing how one’s art—whether it be painting, drawing, or mixed media—can seem to have greater depth and importance when you read a well-combed artist statement. I have always felt that the work must speak for itself. You either have a reaction to it or you don’t, and the dialogue you have with the piece is the only important thing once it leaves my studio. I work with colors and materials that when combined strike a emotional chord within me, which I hope translates to the viewer.
