As an artist, I strive to develop paintings that give vibrance and dignity to my subjects. My art must have significant meaning to me esthetically, emotionally, visually and spiritually. I want to arouse the senses, so that I encourage the viewer to experience the sense of my subject matter. Moving, happy, sad, strong, emotive; I attempt to capture each nuance of the human spirit. The goal is to inspire the audience to find interest in a face, a figure, an object, a pose.
