Artist's Statement

I consider myself a modern symbolist and a post-postmodern pre-pre Raphealite realist. I believe that humans are instinctually on a quest to return to their hearts where they will find everything they need. In my commitment to art and the perpetration of beauty, I embark upon this quest through painting. I consider myself a romantic. (There are about 6 of us left and we are seeking new applicants.) I believe in the unseen, the impossible, fairies, love and its possibilities, the lexicon of birds, color and the power of beauty to reach others and monumentally change the heart.
