My Philosophy

My work reflects an objective view of the world around us. While everyone views the world subjectively, that doesn't make the world itself subjective to our whims or beliefs. Therefore, I strive to separate my own emotions, prejudices, knowledge, and beliefs from the work, to allow myself to mirror the world around me with a raw and cutting honesty. While the choice of how and what I paint is often influenced by my own emotions, and view of the world, it's important to me to shut that off while working within the painting, and allow the painting to progress without my preconceptions.
