Artist's Statement
" "
For me the process of art making is an adventure with the media. Sometimes that process is directed by specific imagery and at other times I let the media suggest the painting and direction---sort of a subconscious to conscious ordering. Being raised in the rural Midwest has provided me with an abundant source of subject matter to use as inspiration.

Each painting begins as a very physical manipulation of the media. But, just as changes within the elements in nature alter its appearance, so does the process of painting determine the evolution of my work. As the painting develops I begin to fine tune the composition. The initial imagery becomes less and less important.
