I approach my artwork much the same way I approach life-intuitively and with adventure. My art has no doubt been influenced by my Southern roots. Having been raised in the Deep South, my imagination was honed to a sharp edge from a very early age. Much later in life I discovered that art was a natural outlet for my creative and imaginative personality.
I am most successful when I'm not confined to rules and strict technical expectations. There are endless revelations when I have no preconceptions of how a piece will come to conclusion. I find growth through the diversity of this approach to my art as well as to my life. Having the confidence to respond intuitively to reach a successful conclusion is my objective. Nothing can replace the thrill and complete joy of the surprise discoveries along the way.
