It's clear to me that the most honest artist statement is my work. However, I would like to take a moment to explain why I create these pieces of art.
I don't have time to recreate the ordinary. I will not create anything that isn't a challenge for me. The subjects I portray reflect my values of being a hard worker, being self reliant, and most of all, being happy.
My goal is to show what humanity can and should be. My models are confident, strong, ambitious, and beautiful. They understand the value of their own lives and refuse to waste one moment of it. Because of these qualities, I'm occasionally surprised to find that my creations have become my heroes.
I enjoy my process of creating as much as I enjoy the finished work. I strive to create work that will remind the viewer of no other artist. It is my highest goal to create work that will forever evolve toward the sublime.
