Artist Statement – August 2018
I am constantly reminded when I go fishing that one needs to go fishing in order to catch a fish. As I was fishing up in Northern Lights country I thought the same holds true with painting. You need to paint order to create a painting. I had a professor once who told me that I need to be in the studio every day and work on art every day. I took his advice to heart and have constantly tried to work in the studio every day. I don’t always succeed but I sure try.
I also believe that one needs to struggle in order to find success and this same professor said to me, to be a great artist, I had told him that was my dream, you need to get out of your comfort zone in order to be great. How hard that struggle is, to get out of one’s comfort zone, but how great it is when one succeeds. I again took his advice to heart and have constantly tried to go beyond what I am comfortable with. My current works I hope reflect this.
