My work is living, yet just a photograph does not capture all that it is. Most people talk about the “relationship” they have with their art, however; when your art is a person, that relationship reaches new heights. Although that person is the canvas, they are their own person. They are highly impressionable. All the “canvases” that I used, I have an emotional attachment with. Not only how they feel effects my art, but my art effects how they feel. The life story of the “canvas” often influenced the way and what I painted. The challenge of a moving surface always demanded my attention to detail and steady hand. Quickly adapting to error and dealing adversity was always a common factor in making my work. Sometimes the key to make your work jump off the canvas is to not use a canvas at all.
