Artist's Statement

I started my career as a graphic designer and illustrator but gravitated towards fine art as my experimentation in color exceeded the gamut possible with traditional printing techniques. I've recently returned to the digital medium as I become more adept at three dimensional modeling and rendering in programs like E-on's Vue and Newtek's Lightwave. Early illustration lessons still influences my art as each work uses color and light to direct attention to the subject of the piece.

When painting with acrylic, I believe that the canvas is where the true color mixing begins. The colors on my palette are therefore loosely folded together before being applied. Digital pieces are created using the same principles behind my paintings, even when working with 3d objects (only I define color with lighting and layers instead).

The subject matter itself is often chosen for humor, expressed either as visual irony or lighthearted observation, and as an award winning and internationally collected artist, it is my sincerest hope to that there might be something here that brightens your home or office as well.
