Walter’s storied tennis career as a player include a #1 juniors ranking in the world, a #226 ranking on the ATP tour, and matches playing against the greats like John McEnroe.
I started drawing and painting at a very early age, and I am a self-taught artist. My strongest artistic influence has come from the late Joan Mitchell. When I first saw her work over 25 years ago, I was literally staggered by the power and emotion in her paintings. I remember standing there in front of a huge canvas, feeling that her imagery could transport a person to a place of such deep involvement that they would be completely swept away by the sheer emotion of it. It’s difficult to put accurately in words, but I felt that in her work I was being allowed to see the truest expression of her heart and soul. That visual experience has tremendously affected my approach to making art. In each artwork that I create, whether it is a painting, mixed media, or sculpture, I am putting it all out there, opening my heart. I am determined to let my intuition lead, willing to cede all control, to just let what is inside me flow out.
My style is always in a process of incremental evolution. I’m a very tactile, visual learner, and I enjoy the experience of seeing and doing. I observe other artists, studying how they have reached successful resolutions. Over the years, I have explored Willem DeKooning’s color palette, Robert Motherwell’s spatial sense, and Cy Twombly’s use of calligraphic line and marking. These observations continue to help make me a better painter.
