I love to show my art to people. The energy in the room increases. There is a growing sense of excitement, sometimes joy, and the viewer begins to speak about what they see in the piece, where they are finding meaning. Sometimes, there is silence, a quiet introspection, and perhaps even tears when the viewer has been moved by my work. Those are the moments I love best.
Truthfully, my art is much more effective and affective when seen in person. The size, texture, vibrancy, sense of movement and energy—these are things that are impossible to convey through a screen. Here, the viewer only gets a glimpse, a small hint. A fraction of the true experience, but a taste nonetheless. I’m so glad you’re here.
Let’s start at the beginning. When I first began to paint, I honestly had no idea what I was doing, no idea of what I wanted to say, or how to say it.
