Artist Statement

Enter the mists of history. I have always been drawn to the raw intensity of Expressionism — depicting what I feel, rather than see. Most of the subjects I choose are historical in origin, from the 14th century poem The Pearl to the 19th century tall ship Balclutha. I seek to bring life into footnotes of history through vibrant textured pieces.
