Artist statement 

Life is a search

I liken it to working in my studio

My oil painting process 

Begins with ...

 blank canvas 

 A mark, a stroke, figure develops 

First layer of paint applied 

Followed by 

Second layer etc ..

moving form around until 

and at which time All elements of the composition are working 

Then... Everything 

is pushed in that direction 

My work as in life

is a search . 

Everything you need to know about me is in my work.
