I start each work with the idea of helping people to see better and feel more intensely. The ordinary may become unseen over time. Displaying the unseen in a different scale, new context, uncommon color, and separated from the surrounding world when presented as art can make the ordinary extraordinary and the unseen visible. Once visible, art patrons can bring their own feelings to bear on the formerly unseen. I believe this can be realized through work that embraces beauty through the management of color, harmony, organization, and sympathetic treatment of subjects. Employed artfully, abstract elements such as a curve or the way lines lead from one object to and through another are intrinsically beautiful. I feel the beauty as physical pleasure as I draw a sensual curve or adjust one element to make it align with another and believe when it is just right the viewers experience the beauty. Even when a subject is not beautiful the attributes that define its surfaces and edges may be.
