My art endeavors to explore all the dimensions that make us human: spirit, body, mind, and place. The creative drive that shapes and forms my art is a need to “seek communion”. Communion with myself, with others, with God. Each Subject offers its own emotional energy, shaping the nature of the expression. Painting portraits is akin to a process of stripping away what I know stroke by stroke attempting to reveal or discover what is hidden
I think when all the stripping is done and a work is successful we are left with something closer to truth, beauty or mystery. These, after all, are the invisible things, enclosed by the flesh.
