"Art is always moving toward a natural state: an expression of what naturally arises in the moment rather than pushing my own agenda. I search, remain open, refine a form that wishes to appear, and feel when to let it be raw, without critique."

Dear friends, family and supporters,
Patreon is a new way for me to raise funds for the work I do in this world. Unlike Kickstarter, this forum allows you to support me monthly in my pursuit of becoming more visible as an artist, and in making work that expresses the movement of the inner world.

Here are some of the next steps I hope to take with your support:

  • I want to transition into a lifestyle where I am able to paint and draw every day, and therefore make a living from my skill and vision.

  • I feel that the imagery that I create in painting and drawing lends itself naturally to three-dimensional form -- I want to begin to work in sculpture.

  • I would like to return to the medium of printmaking -- woodcuts, linocuts and screenprints.

  • I would like to break into the arena of illustration for magazines and books.

  • I want to show my art in galleries near and far and sell my paintings.

  • I want to apply for grants, commissions and special projects to support my endeavors.

  • I want to continue my exploration in portraiture.

"I find it’s less self-expression and more an expression of what is beyond myself. I begin by honing in on the form, finding the lines that express its volume, its particular curves, its movement and gesture. Increasingly I see all of the expressions of the world in the body, as though we are walking microcosms of Earth -- from the desert landscape to the soft curve of seashells to old withered trees that look like old withered ladies out for Sunday shopping with moss growing on their chin. We seem to carry the seed of all these things in us and art is my way of considering this commonality and tapping in to the sense of unity we gain from that vision."
