- I believe that art should be more than just brush stokes on canvas showing a precise and literal duplication of an event. Art is far more than that. True art captures emotions, feelings and the energy of the object or event that is being depicted. It goes far deeper than the cold, flat surface of duplication. True art has an entity of its own, it is alive and has the ability to speak, touch and convey emotions to it's viewer. I consider my art to be an extension of myself. The closest representation that I can find is that of a child.
A picture is worth a 1000 words but a true work of art is worth 10,000. Art is the combination of emotion and creation, life's two most precious and beautiful gifts. The most sensitive and passionate have the greatest ability to either create or appreciate art. In a way you allow people to see who you truly are when you paint in an expressive manner. You allow the viewer to see things that you tell no one, witness your pain, joy, love and sadness. They view your soul, the depths of your mind, your highest highs and your lowest lows.
Thank you for taking the time to view my work and to learn a bit about me.
