I have worked in oils, Acrylic, watercolor, mixed media and photography. Currently I am exploring digital manipulation of my art and photography. The main focus being landscapes and abstracts. My approach to art depends on the subject I am pursuing.
'My philosophy about art is that art should be an expression of three main concepts. One being beauty. Two being an emotion. Three being an idea. Since there is much malevolence in the world, I feel one has the obligation to point out what is beautiful. At the same time it is important for the artist to express his inner tumult and happiness alike to show how he feels and learn about his relationship with others and his environment. This expression is an important release that can perhaps bring an inner peace to oneself and a better understanding for others who may want to understand you or perhaps something about them. Probably one of the most important of all is the expression of an idea. That idea can be a number of things. It can be political or religious, an opinion or a fact, a new concept or an old tradition. It can be a way to right a wrong. It can also bring about change.'
I have explored artistic expression since a child.
