Artists Statement

“I am most concerned with capturing the essence of my very rich dream life. My paintings are primarily attempts to find order and understanding within the greater context of my waking life. I find the act of lucid dreaming to be a spiritual tool of immense power, and my art seeks to give voice to this action.
The painting technique I employ is a variation of the old master’s glazing technique; where many layers of glaze hold pigment (oil based in this case) between layers, creating a quality of light and depth that I find to be interesting.”
