Vision Statement


My artwork tends to be eclectic. I have a variety of different styles and subject matter ranging from portraits to landscapes to planets to paintings depicting poetry. My portraits of faces give emotional expression to people reflecting little animation. I have completed approximately 10 portraits. My paintings of planets and landscapes tend to be vivid in color. I have completed at least ten of these, as well. As indicated, I have created what I call “poem paintings.” These are represented as my own poetry on a water-colored paper. They are laminated in a way that produces a glossy surface. I have painted 29 of these. The uniqueness of the different styles that I use might be construed as noncommittal indecisiveness, but I prefer to understand it as versatility.
