Painting

Artist Statement

I used to think that there was a specific social order to life. If I worked hard enough to attain a certain professional position, raised the right family, and attended the right church that a deep and ordered sense of satisfaction would logically follow. That satisfaction, however, always eluded me. Rather than peace, I experienced a series of events where nearly every institution I believed in crumbled. My marriage, my job, and my beliefs all came to a roaring crash, and I was left alone to pick up the pieces of my shattered life and begin anew. That’s when I seriously began my return to making art.

Reflective of my experiences, my paintings begin by making abstract marks with colors and building textures. These work together towards attaining compositional balance and visual unity. Whether fully abstract or semi-figurative, my goal is to take you on a visual journey of ups and downs, ins and outs, curves, bumps, and questions. In the end, you might see a little something of yourself and your own journey now assembled into a harmonious expression of colors and lines. My abstract paintings are ultimately about the resiliency of the human spirit and serve to be a blessing to those who see them.
