Artist's Statement

I make art because it's the only way I know how to assuage my condition: aside from arthritis in my knees, I am a northern Renaissance artist trapped in a 21st Century American's body. My methods are unabashedly classical. My three B's are Bosch, Bruegel and [met de] Bles. It may explain my constant urge to transform two-dimensional planes into what are best described as autobiographical-anachronistic-mythological-cosmic fantasyscapes.
