Artist’s Statement

I like wondering – not so much knowing – about the subject. It is curiosity that compels me to choose my themes. My paintings represent the feeling of anticipation and mystery that the subject evokes in me. I enjoy viewing art that poses open questions. My goal is to create work that invites you to imagine.
