Art is inherently emotional. We are drawn to a work because of how it makes us feel, and we appreciate the artist’s ability to evoke our response. An image can thrill, shock, delight or sadden us. Our minds respond to images and those responses can be powerful.
My goal as an artist is to create images that have multiple layers and meanings, that have an expressive quality that moves the viewer—whether it comes from the beauty of a flower, the poignancy of a scene or portrait, or from the color, shape and texture of an abstract form. Each of my portfolios is distinct, but they all share a common objective: to create images with enough expressive power to produce a dynamic with the viewer, to provide opportunity for new interpretations and thereby allow the images to yield their full meaning.
