The motivation for any artwork, for me, is to reach out: reaching out to share, to provide, to move, to meet new experiences or challenges. To develop a specific piece is to learn the essence of the goal, then visually share that information with a diverse audience. It brings art and the story outside of galleries and schools, then shares it with a much wider circle of people. The concept can be current, historic, sweeping or singular. It can be conveyed by elemental color and form, or it can be a richly illustrated image, but it must be appropriate to the space and ‘reach’ the viewer. Each creation comes with its own challenges and rewards.
