I started out as a talented conceptual artist but noticed a trend in art away from the image and towards putting the importance on the Artist Statement. This did not feel genuine to the reason I enjoyed doing artwork. For many years I transitioned to simply writing an artist statement without creating anything to accompany it. Doing artwork didn’t feel the same as it had when I was a child when I simply created an image with no context or plan. As a child, I would draw on the sides of my notes in school starting with a few expressive lines in which I would see an image, usually an animal.
I have decided to separate my image and writing for the time being while I improve my skill drawing in the same manner as in my childhood or creating still lifes. Currently, I have three distinct styles which sometimes mix: an illustration style, an abstract style, and a realistic style.
