Statement

At a certain point, words float into the wind and disappear like vapor. I give my paintings a voice in which they tell their own story to the viewer. For me an image has the potential to poignantly convey emotion, power and intensity. In my paintings the versatility and malleability of the human form provides for an exhilarating struggle for invention and personal enlightenment. When painting I confront my materials head on with the desire to expose the paradox of illusion versus reality while exposing the ambiguity of the act. The organic, unique and perpetually changing nuances of existence are all essentially the beating pulse I thrive on. I aspire to forge a bond between art of the past, present and future while illuminating the raw soul and humanity of my work.
