Artist's Statement

I try to create art that adds to the arena – something interesting and unique. I choose subjects that interest me and techniques that challenge and advance my skills. I like variety in the art I view as well as the art I create. Therefore, you will find my work in charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, paper media and mixed media.

Prior to beginning a new piece, I give considerable time to choosing a subject, medium and technique. I work unrushed and stay committed to the final pen or brush stroke. My goal is to engage the viewer and stimulate an interesting and enjoyable experience.
