abstractions, animal, canine, dog


Like many artists, I initially began painting figuratively, but I'm rarely interested in literal depictions of the world around me. Fantasy elements immediately appeared in my work and are particularly apparent in Epiphany* and Dandelion Breath*. My portraits of dogs and cats are somewhat of an exception, having anthropomorphized my subjects though these paintings rather than simply recording their physical appearance. Each of my animal subjects is imbued with a distinct personality and an individuality that sets him or her apart from the rest of the animal world.

My most recent work includes a new series, Small Animals*, combining abstraction and earlier animal themes. Once again, the interplay of scale and perspective create a surreal environment in which animal forms float, alone and out-of-place, simultaneously alienated and intrigued by their situation.

In addition to my studio work, over the last five years I have lectured in Art History at Manhattan College.
