I strive to make a direct connection with those who view my work. Passion, isolation and loss, ironies and possibility drive my process. Through expressive, colorful and rhythmic compositions, my work reflects a passion for color, emotion, and grace.
The challenge of capturing the essence of an individual in a single image is compelling. I love to paint faces, often referencing photographs representing the life of a loved one or depicting a pivotal moment in time.
My CinemaScope oil series explores film and TV imagery. How does such ubiquitous visual input tinge our perceptions of self and society?
Roomscapes and still life works capture vibrant color, a mood, and compositional dynamics. Included in my portfolio are historical figures and themes, both wry and mysterious.
