The fact that artworks always seem to have meanings behind them, even when the viewer or artist themselves doesn’t realize it, has always been an interesting concept to me. I have always created works of art with a purpose of utility. I never realized I had any deeper meaning behind my works until recently.
My art is a way for me to escape the overwhelming and complex life that we live in. It's a way for me to escape right where I'm at without having to physically go somewhere. I like to paint scenes from nature as the land and animals are able to live such a simple content life where God is their sole provider.
In my ceramics I like to make utilitarian works because to me they hold more value when the viewer is able to functionally use them. I believe this makes the work more significant and personal. I create simple and somewhat practical objects.
In my woodworking I enjoy the ability to be inventive with my work and the ability to bring conceptual ideas from other mediums to life in a wooden form.
My art is a way for me to allow others to see the way I feel and think without having to use words.
