Living Life as Art

The Image Maker

I am an image maker, more than a painter, or a printmaker.

My interest is to use the offerings of the medium: the grain, the brush, the viscous paint, the torn edge of the paper, all of these elements affect the surface in such a way as to open the door in, into the feeling of the image. Each expressed image is linked to the observed, relying on my eyes to unlock the mind and investigate the possibilities of manifesting the image. Sometimes the scintillation of it is where it ends but sometimes the motif itself causes a hoped for a sensation of lingering joy, or commonality. We may all speak different languages but the resonance of an image can be multi-lingual. This is what I hope for in each of my images.
