The common link between the thoughts behind my work is that I am extremely interested in the ongoing argument between Creationism vs. Darwinism vs. Intelligent Design vs. The Ancient Mystery vs. Who we really are today.
The point of my paintings is to provoke as much thought as possible. I try hard not to overly point a viewer in any one specific direction. I don't believe this is my job as an artist. I would much rather present several ideas or options or paths for any viewer to take throughout any given piece. Therefore, I purposely leave a certain amount of ambiguity in the work. At its best, viewers will be able to make connections between the characters I paint and their own lives.
I strive to bring awareness to the way in which we live. My paintings reflect our society, our nation, and our most intimate relationships. Is there room for improvement or growth in our lives?
