The artist vocation is to send light
into the human heart. -Robert Schumann
BEHIND THE CANVAS
I am fortunate to be able to express myself through Art. My entire life has alway included creation in some form or another.
From a very early age Oil Paints intrigued me. I love everything about them. The richness of color, the smooth texture, the smell, the way you have to be patient in order to work with them. Over the past 20 years I have explored and focused on expressing my vision through Oils. I primarily use a pallette knife allowing many layers of paint to build and enjoy working with the emotive quality that color can convey within a painting.
I don't want you to simply SEE something as much as FEEL something. The beauty of an object or place, shape and color relationships, composition, stretching the boundaries of perspective within a painting are all important to me, but what is FELT when viewing a painting is what drives my vision.
