Artist StatementI have explored and created nearly every kind of artwork in my life, but drifted to a concentration in painting. Brush to canvas has been my love for many years now. Everything that I create is an expression of emotion, spirituality, and thought. Complete loss of conscious recognition of the outside world occurs when I do my best work. Painting is my love and my passion, behind only my family and friends. It is for me a near compulsion which I have little interest in trying to control.
I was born and raised in a small town called Upper Marlboro, outside of Washington DC. I began college at St. John's College in Annapolis, MD and finished my BA at York College of Pennsylvania. I did not study Art in college. Strict structure in creative expression has never been my forte and I still have no interest in recreating still life displays of fruit. Nothing against fruit, just not usually my thing. I am a founding believer in the Whole Art philosophy, which views everything in existence as a form of art.
