Artist's Statement

Painting drawing poetry it all comes to life with a spirit animal, an ancestor, even an old friend. More is always revealed and so I travel my world on the sly.  I find inspiration in ancient to current folk arts and legends. watercolor on found drawing papers & boards. My work has been compared to that of other Contemporary Neo-Expressionists since the mid '80's. I express with and without words the palette knife, drawing in layers. Spontaneity can wreak havoc on an idea or bring it into a life beyond my wildest dreams.
