Artist Statement

When I was a very young student, my class went on a field trip to Munson-Williams-Proctor Museum in Utica. I saw Thomas Cole’s four paintings, “The Voyage of Life,” and then, at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, I saw Chaim Soutine’s “Carcass of Beef.” I had already been interested in art, but from then on, I knew what I wanted to do; make pictures! I didn’t know what “art” was. I probably still don’t, but expression through picture making was it. Something I’m still trying to do in my current oils and past lithographs. In my watercolors and acrylics, I’m more interested in capturing and responding to the current environment that surrounds me.
