I am a figurative artist. Human behavior is the motivation for my work.

Manipulating color, shape, texture, space, etc. elements used for creating art, I “shout” or “whisper” i.e., overstate or understate the point of my content. I want the viewer to ask himself, “What is this artist trying to say.” In the process of wanting what he sees to have some meaning, this viewer, hopefully, will call upon his relevant personal perceptions/feelings to apply in this instance. This projection is the viewer’s effort to satisfy his search for personal or universal meaning in the work.

In my work I strive toward this end.
