Artist Statement

We have been in the digital age for the past 20 years or so. And more artist incorporate the use of computer and internet images than ever before. They also use assistants and others to help with the creative process. I don't have a problem with this, I just think it should be mentioned when it is employed. I find the process of oil paint and brush alluring in and of itself. And, going out to find the vanishing subject matter with the heartfelt stories of the people attached to this "Americana" very moving and profound. It is my responsibility as a painter to visually represent them to the best of my ability.
