When I have selected the media I am going to use, I attack it with a premeditated plan and use the emotion of the moment to carry the voice of intuition to its full expression. The "spirit" of this creative endeavor speaks very true with me as I have had many years of developing the "ear", rather than the "eye", to create these images for you. Much of my inspiration comes from various life experiences such as in the early years of my adulthood dealing with the guilt and associated pains of divorcing my first wife; raising my son as a single parent; the dating game and relationships gone bad. During this early artistic period in my life I challenged the limits of my own imagination by experimenting with assorted deprivation studies. These experiments were artistically valuable to me and I plan to do more soon to see how the imagination has changed as I age...as a comparative study. In more recent years I have been exploring word-play and language, social and political commentary and, being an inquisitive idealist, searching the true meaning of self. I believe art should shock the viewer's interests and curiosity enough to consider more time for a second look. Art should be so bold...unaffected by biting criticism, that it keeps pushing the edge of common thought out further, bringing the masses out of its slumber.
