Artist Statement

This movie poster was inspired by the many hours of interviews with Pete Martin during the filming of, "Race to a Legacy".

Initially I wanted to shoot a documentary for my 90 year old dad chronicling his 40 year career as a professional illustrator for the government and life as a fine artist. But it became so much more. Now, standing on the other side of it, I’m extremely grateful that I created this opportunity to sit down and spend so much more time not only with my dad, but my mom and sisters as well.

My hope is that the audience walks away with some tears of inspiration in their eyes, some understanding of my dad’s life and work as an artist for 75 years, and their own reasoning why he is painting over his detailed paintings.
