I started drawing as a way to emulate my older brother, who is a talented artist in his own right. That taught me an appreciation for light, shape, texture, and most of all movement as profoundly emotive elements of the human experience. Whenever I admire something – a sculpture, a comic book, a Caravaggio painting – I get the urge to make it myself. That has led me through a lifetime of work as both a commercial and fine artist, through ink, charcoal, oils, acrylics, and many other forms of mark-making. All of this work represents my interest in art as a way of interpreting and comprehending the world I live in. What motivates the choices I make in every piece is the desire to make things that bring me a sense of awe.
