statement about what this is all about

personal history and such

art statement

i seek to recreate the edges of those holes worn in a person's past. to create images of situations that conjure up a memory you may have had, something similar to a feeling you once experienced. to make images that allow you to place yourself in them, to change them around and use it as a patch for a hole you have, to make your story more complete. in my paintings i attempt to capture the beauty of faded memories and dreams. i think there are certain things in life that all people have been astounded by, hence my large skies, distant horizons, and imaginary creatures. i hope to create not moments of greatness, but rather moments where greatness has become mundane and attainable, moments that the viewer can place themselves inside.
