As an artist, I will only accept the very best of what I can create. I love the process, and the emotions I feel within the process. I love the “hunt” for the finished piece, like an archeologist, brushing away layer upon layer, to slowly see the treasure emerging. Each of those “treasures” is a child of mine.
Even more than that, it is, specifically, emotion that I seek. It’s the dawning excitement I feel as I first think of a concept or technique I want to use. It’s the emotion of the hunt, when I pursue an idea. It’s the connection and interaction with something you are genuinely creating from nothing. The excitement of creating your own legacy. My creations are from within, and therefore, they are a part of me and a reflection of something deeper.
And I'm looking for the emotion within you. Maybe it's positive, like happiness, love or excitement. Maybe the emotion will be sadness and anger. Either way, I want an impact. I want it to hit home in some way. Maybe you'll feel a heavy sense of nostalgia when you view my fine art print, “Old Friends”.
Maybe my Acrylic painting, “Abuse” will strike a profound chord in you that leaves you distracted and contemplative.
What I want my art to do… is not to necessarily make you happy, sad or excited. Not solely to give you pleasure. But to hit you inside somewhere. I want you to remember my art through the feelings you felt when experiencing it.
"THE USUAL SUSPECTS"
"CHARGED FOR BREAK"
I want your emotions. I want the validation I feel, when I see someone else’s reaction to my art. If my creation gives rise to emotions, it is everything I want from another. It’s a feeling of acceptance, that someone values something that is a part of me, and a reflection, in some way, of who I am.
