After leaving university, I set off for Chicago, with a conviction that I wanted to study art....How i would enter this great institution and with what means, was still rather vague. I worked odd jobs and, for the first time in my life, rode many elevated and underground trains . My point of view changed. Over the next 2 years, I created a portfolio of works on paper to submit for graduate school admission. These works started in black and white and evolved into color, and I assuaged my homesickness for the Virginian Blue Ridge by intertwining their soft graceful curves with the pulsating city lights and linear midwest plains.
Painting is just another way of keeping a diary. --Pablo Picasso
My blog will be primarily my reflections on my work throughout my life--what moves me to want to create something which is difficult to express in any other way but through visual means.
Sometimes I will discuss specific pieces on which I am currently working and how they relate to works in the past. Other times my comments will be more general about what imagery, whether "real" or imagined, interests me.
