Being an artist is like being a hen. The egg will be laid. Art will find a way to live.
I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and different mediums to find what will express my idea most clearly and concisely. But conversely I think about a piece for a long time before I put my hand to it. As someone unknown advises, I paint what I know.
Inspiration comes from all sources. I read voraciously and the words and images fertilize the seeds of ideas harbored within my memories. If any emotion is reflected in my work, humor is foremost. I feel that I see things from a different perspective and I try to express that viewpoint. I don’t want to spell things out. I want my art to send you sensations that trigger your own memories. I hope that my love of my subjects comes across.
