Artist Statement

T H O U G H T S

Art that goes beyond the obvious, that goes beyond copying, that goes to the gut, that says something, excites me.

The figure has always been my focus, and over the years it's become a psychological focus, a not-always-easy-to-view focus.

I feel an artist finds out what they have to say by doing.  It is discovered during the working process, being open to glimpses, fearlessly accepting whatever happens no matter what, to reach a vulnerable personal voice.

Get angry with yourself, don't be afraid to be desperate.  Go to a deeper level within where your truth resides, where things feel right. Use materials that feel natural, that allow you to play.

Art with only surface excitement seems empty.  For me it has to have a serious and profound underpinning, always poignant, often humorous, relating in some way to the universal humanity common to all of us.
