"Elemental truth of/in my subject and life drives me. I am focused on the expression of the essentials - the force and essence of my subject. Highest and best is a representation that recreates the heart of the subject and its outward evident beauty or qualities.

my style is an abstraction of the figurative . I like color, volumetric shape, and graphic lines. While one knows my subject one knows more fully the spirit of the subject. I take my liberties and express my emotions in a poetic interpretation."
