Artist Statement

“Art should not be limited by one specific style, medium, process. Every moment of observation around us is not constant ever changing. I try to capture the essence of the moment. A particular series will engage me for a few weeks, a few years. Hopefully appreciated and engaging the viewer, whether a work represents an actual recognizable image or feeling in a particular body of work”- Steven Toth
