In all art ‘the archer aims at himself’. Yet when he hits the mark the work often transcends the artist’s own particular circumstances. So, paradoxically, sometimes very personal work touches a universal human theme. That is the artist’s hope.
My work all grows out of personal experience. Sometimes it is just the experience of being present and attentive to the day. Often the paintings are musings about the human condition or spiritual matters. They are informed by personal experience and by the observation of nature. I find moments in the natural world that read as metaphors for my own existence. Sitting. Looking. Reflecting. I look beyond the physical realm.
