A Quote from the Artist:
"I am without a doubt a miniature and small work artist in every way that defines the genres. One of the most horrifying things to me is to paint a canvas larger then 11x14. I believe it is my Grandfather's detailed mind at work along with a second dose of retentiveness from my artist parents that drives the detail machine in my head. I am most at home with "Miniature Fine Art" - That which is classically defined as substrates no larger then 25 square inches and "Small Works" - Which are classically defined as substrates larger then 25 square inches but no larger then 100 square inches.
Many artists today produce smaller artwork that are less expensive companions to their larger pieces, pricing work relative to its size. These works are often less detailed as well as less time consuming then their larger pieces. Classical Miniature and Small Works are a completely different animal. Often presenting more detail and time of creation then the largest of canvases and historically fetching thousands of dollars for a portrait that would fit into a locket size pendant. It is its own complete genre' of fine art and one I find forever increasingly challenging as well as rewarding.
It is my goal to push the envelop of these two genres as far as I can, exploring contemporary, political, and emotional themes as well as the traditional subjects. What intrigues and drives me the most in Miniature and Small Works is the intimate relationship between the painting and the viewer. One must appreciate these works up close, one on one. In this encounter a fine miniature or small work will draw the viewer into its world; conveying its messages and revealing its mysteries within the execution of fine detail, use of light and color, composition, and subject. No other genre' in the world of fine art has such an intimate and delicate relationship with its viewer. It is this and the unexplored possibilities within the genre' that are so very alluring to me."
