Art is an evolving process of growth, discovery, and experimentation. The true mystery in art is that sometimes we don’t understand the intent of an artist. Art is a form of abstract language and sometimes it is an absolute langue and sometimes it is beyond our understanding of what is being expressed.

Art develops and changes over time as the individual artist’s growth and experiences change. How an artist expresses what he or she sees or experiences can be influenced by many factors like personal experiences, a life altering event, changes in society, or change in a personal belief system. My interest in art revolves around the interactions between life and nature, both the visual and the hidden connection between humans, animals, and nature itself and how each interconnects or independently influences the other. 

In my personal work I find it invigorating and refreshing when I step away from my work for periods of time and let life reset how I look at the environment around me. I was born in Phoenix Arizona and lived there for most of my life, which resulted in influencing how I saw my work. My wife and I have relocated to Oregon where this environment will influence the work again. What hasn’t changed is my style of gestural expressionism and color palette and how that is applied to new ideas.
