Figures and Faces
My work starts with a narrative, a story line that continues to tug at me. To fully express these narratives, my work typically evolves from a series of drawings to final painting - sometimes a straightforward process, sometimes circuitous.
Whether a landscape, still life, or the human figure, I approach them equally as dimensional constructions, each with a distinct architecture, texture and color balance. Experimenting with composition lets me introduce a dynamic tension into the illusion of three-dimensional space by presenting a subject at rest, balanced, while pushing it off-kilter at the same time.
I strive to create works that present a moment of serenity and reflection. Works that invite, rather than bombard.
