Artist’s Ideology

"Visual inspiration and personal symbolism are the initial catalysts in developing my painting compositions. My objective is to build toward what my ‘mind's eye‘ has conceptualized. In order to juxtapose and balance the themes and representations, all compositional elements and objects are carefully considered. My paintings are then fully constructed using a sound traditional oil technique. My hopes are to invite you, the viewer, to discover your own personal interpretations from my artwork."
