I seek to convince the viewer of how I interpret my subjects. Abstract is always my favorite because its subject to interpretation. The realist painter conveys his or her own reality and hopes to engage the viewer in sharing the illusion. I define my work as a balance between mastery of technique, an opinion to express and an emotional reaction. The ultimate goal is to seek truth, and be unafraid to share what I find.
My work is primarily the result of my need to paint, it is both a challenge and an outlet, a discipline and a passion. Inspiration for me can evolve at any time and in any place. I am not confined to one subject area, preferring to vary my projects and media. Though oil, selective mediums is my favorite. White lead is essential to my oil painting, both for its luminescence and sculptural quality. My canvases are white lead primed and each work is a series of underpaintings, layered one on one, until the final image has built up and I am confident there is nothing left to add.
