“In this painting, I used the Indian as a symbol for man living in harmony with nature. His belief in the eagle heart is so strong that he is surrounded by its spirit protectors and he becomes ‘one’ with the spirit, rocks and snow.
“This is the message of my painting, I have used camouflage technique in ‘Eagle Heart,’ as in many other paintings, to communicate an idea. Many people call me a ‘camouflage artist,’ but that just isn’t true. If I have to be categorized at all, I like to think of myself as a ‘concept painter.’
“I am an artist who uses camouflage to get my story across, to slow down the viewing process so you can discover it for yourself. Everything I do is intended to enhance the idea of each piece. For me, camouflage is a means to an end, not an end in itself. My meaning and message are never hidden.”
