Artist Statement

Artist Statement

For over 30 years I have been blessed to combine my love for Art and Sports and form a business in which I am very proud. Sports Art can be very demanding, requiring much study and extreme attention to detail. The individuality of an Athlete or Coach is second to none. The study of the uniforms, logos, equipment and the anatomy of the Players can be much. Yet that is not nearly enough as you are required to capture the movement and magic if each individual personality and style. From year to year with equipment changes, hair styles, tattoos and team uniform alterations, you can't stay in a rut. You have to constantly study. Paying attention to each detail.

The difference in the size of each athlete from position to position and Sport to Sport. From Football to NASCAR to International Equine Competition. Accepting the challenge of expression on the faces, in the eyes and body language and complex diversities of anatomy from human to animal and even to race car. These are a few things that the Players appreciate and things that most Artist fail to care about. With the new digital forms of Art with only demand a couple of hours, no brushes, pencils or paint. We have decided to stay in the ways of the Old Masters which require much care, much time and work. Many meticulous hours to reach and compliment the style of Super Realism which demands as close to a photographic look without losing the touch of the Fine Artist. Taking a supervising role in the Reproduction process as well as the Custom Framing choices have proven to be an Art within themselves in which I relish as well as the work at the easel in Studio. I've had a chance to meet some of the greatest Professional and Collegiate Players and Coaches in the world. To sign partnership agreements with them selling and distributing my work all over the Country and outside. It's been a blessing beyond blessings to fulfill a Calling while taking care of my Family at the same time.

Upon You have I leaned and relied from birth; You are He Who took me from my mother's womb and You have been my benefactor from that day. My praise is continually of You. I am as a wonder and surprise to many, but You are my strong refuge. My mouth shall be filled with Your praise and with Your honor all the day. (Psalm 71:6-8 AMP)
