There are three words that describe the character of my oil paintings: reflective, perceptive, and banjos. Yes, banjos. From a literal perspective, I find it fascinating to create a reflective image on a canvas that is not. From an internal perspective, I am able to reflect on and express aspects of myself that would otherwise remain hidden. Painting has also enhanced my perception; or maybe an enhanced perception influences my work. Beyond this, there is a decided lack of banjo art on this planet. I aim to fix this.
