Art is personal.

Art is powerful.

Art connects.

 

As a collector and an artist I've been on both sides of the painting. My very first show a guest stood crying in front of one of my paintings.

 

"This painting touches me on such a deep level," she told me. "It is an inner expression of the emotions I am experiencing in my life at this time." And then she continued to sob. 

When I painted it, I was going through a tumultuous time myself and painting was my outlet. Then to find a stranger that connects to the same painting on just as an emotional level​ moved me to pursue a career in fine arts. 

Painting for me is something I need to do. I must do. When the mood strikes, watch out. I will disappear for weeks on end and emerge with a dozen paintings.
