The artists I like dont have artists statements.
Nevertheless, here is my ode to watercolor: I think, plan, draw, mask, paint in careful washes - and she does whatever she wants. Such is the labor of a watercolorist
With my portraits
, I want to advocate
for the poor, and to bring out the dignity in a person. Im aiming for accuracy, vibrancy and color.
With the collage
paintings, I want to use layers as an allegory for thought, and symbols for association that might invite interpretations from many cultures. The paintings explore ethics, anthropology, faith and spirituality.
Im a big believer in art that has both craft and content.
