Artist Statement

A lot of artists romanprofilepic_edited-1ticize the ‘process’ or the ‘journey’ when it comes to art; the bringing of color to blank paper, expressing the hidden beauty in all things. I am not that artist. Illustration and painting are a means to my end. And what is my end? I want to grow a community of artists and appreciators of art. A group where we can be creative together, work through the tedious line work stages and laugh through the frustrations of art block. What I want is to bring people together. The physical art is a side effect.
