Education Bachelor of Arts, University of Southwestern Louisiana Artist Statement As an artist, I believe in practicing the sound principals of painting that I have learned and currently teach, but I also believe that an artist should strive for something more than just the technical skill in their work. There is a feeling, or reaction, that one gets when standing in front of a painting or a piece of art. Sometimes, it`s not an easy thing to describe. It might be the sense of place in a landscape, the light on the subject, or a fleeting expression in a portrait. These are the types of reactions that one hopes are communicated in his or her paintings. The best scenario is when the technical and the emotional part of painting is inseparable.
