Welcome


I am an artist, not a writer. My Intent is not to educate, enlighten or inspire but rather to clarify my motivations to myself. I find that when I write down the thoughts and reasons that I take certain paths, it helps me to avoid repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Let's face it, authentic work evolves through a series of mistakes, lessons learned and options eliminated.

Orange Matter


                              "Orange Matter" 32"x 24" mixed media on rigid foam panel

   It is quite interesting how art kind of ends up being what art want's to be, no matter what my initial concepts try to dictate. I think that it is important that I remain playful and not let the work become too precious, just enjoy and learn from the process.

Gaining Confidence in Your Art


     I find myself believing that the current piece I am working on defines my art and my abilities. In reality, I know that one piece is just a step in the evolution, forward or backward, and cannot speak for an entire body of work. Over time, I have gained faith that my vision will return and cancel any doubt that a difficult piece may foster. This is a lesson that was hard to learn as struggles and failures caused debilitating self doubt to interfere with my progress. I would complete a satisfying painting and have a great nights sleep only to awaken the next morning to see the piece anew and wonder what in the world I was thinking! Every artist I have ever spoken with has had to deal with failure and self-doubt. It is part of the process of evolution, learn from it and move on.  At least you are finding out what doesn't work!
