Artists Statement In my own art practice, I am constantly searching for fresh voices to reveal truths of the human condition and the troubling vanity and futility of living one's life selfishly, and entirely for the moment. I see my role as artist to help define the ever-changing landscape of cultural conflict and contradiction within the human heart and those burning questions we ask. There is wisdom in mining reasons to leave this world a better place. To that end, I view teaching as another viable art form as well. My own personal artistic mentors are professors: Lynwood Kreneck, Bill Weege, Warrington Colescott, and the late Dean Meeker.
