Artist Statement

As an artist I choose subjects that represent the qualities of intelligence, gentleness, vulnerability, approachability, and a strong sense of self-identity. I prefer subtlety. A lot can be surmised about the personalities of the figures I paint without focusing one’s attention on the body and face alone.

Each figure stands independent in a space. A quiet dialog exists between the figure and its surroundings. To reach at an understanding of the personality the viewer must journey through the painting, finally arriving at the recognition that we are made human not only by the elements that compose us but also those that surround us.

Patterns are fun to make. Adornment, rhythm, repetition, and depth of paint create multiple layers the viewer can travel through. Thus depth exists in both perspective and in layers which offer glimpses of deeper colors, shapes, and figures.
