The Artist on His Art:

As a representational artist, I work in the traditions of the 19th century Classical Romantic period. Although primarily a studio painter, I do gather as much information as possible directly from nature. My subject matter ranges from figurative and portraiture to landscape. By combining these elements, I am often able to introduce historical and mythological themes to my paintings.
I attended the University of Utah in the mid-1980's, however in need of inspiration; I sought out individual instructors whose teachings more suited my own needs as a painter. I was also employed in the studio of sculptor Edward J. Fraughton for over twelve years. I learned the importance of basic drawing skills from Ed, a concept that was not emphasized at the University.
Inspired by 19th century artistic values, I traveled abroad to study first hand, the works of artists such as Waterhouse, Bouguereau, Gerome, and Tadema. It is important to me to keep alive what these and other artists like them were doing. By continuing in this genre of narrative painting I can bring to life the myths and legends that have shaped our society throughout history. It is my desire to bring back art with which we, as a society, can identify.
Mythology, as well as art, is an important part of every generation. I believe that myths connect us with the world that exists beyond what we can see and touch. This is best expressed by the late and distinguished author and teacher, Joseph Campbell, who said, ‚"Myth helps you to put your mind in touch with this experience of being alive."
The ancient Athenians embodied the idea of "truth of nature" and aesthetics reached a pinnacle with this truly free-thinking society. What they saw in the human form encompassed all they desired in fine art. I believe that society is again ready for a return to this type of thinking. It is a basic, human desire to experience works of art with which we are able to identify. We should no longer accept "works of art" which can only be understood by the artist who created them. We must insist on quality and reward talent and hard work.
