Artist Statement


In this fast paced life of cell phones, text messaging, and email, it seems as if we ride through life on auto pilot. We’re in such a hurry to get from point A to point B, we tend to miss the beauty found in between.

I love to challenge myself to find the beauty in the commonplace and the overlooked. It is easy to notice something that is obviously beautiful. My goal as a artist is to help people see the beauty of the mediocre and hopefully evoke a sense of wonder at something they have seen a million times.

Charles Hawthorne, (January 8, 1872 – November 29, 1930) a noted painter and teacher who founded the Cape Cod School of Art in 1899 once said, “Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision, it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so.”
