Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
What we call a work of art, whether it be a sculpture, a painting, a drawing, a pot, or a print, is the physical, tangible evidence of each artist’s continuing search toward defining that which is perceived as real. And being the egocentric creatures that we are, each person’s reality is highly subjective. I believe that it is within the search (process is everything) that meaning lies. And the expression of meaning is the true concern of the artist, not superficial statements of beauty. As I look at my paintings and prints, I find four basic issues that are central to the meaning of my work.
