Ready to Hang


I have always created, for as long as I can remember. I am one of those people who constantly sketch. I have always drawn well, so the obvious progression was that I eventually become a fine artist. I have spent many years in the commercial art field producing photo realistic rendering for the Big Three, but I am now a point in my career where commercial work is no longer satisfying to me. As an artist I have only one objective. That is to engage the viewer in a visual conversation at an emotional level. My aim is to trigger an emotional response. To get to what’s underneath all the social posturing. The medium has no bearing on this goal Painting, sculpture or photography. Oil, Bronze, or digital. My work has been representational and non objective. My recent work has purposefully avoided using imagery that contains any social identity for that sole purpose, much as the abstract expressionist; I seek to engage one without the distractions of politics, sexuality and social commentary. My work has and always will stress sound composition and design.
