Statement

I am interested in the narrative and psychological nature of portraiture.  Contemporary paintings of specific people simultaneously raise questions and offer clues about individual identity and the larger cultural context in which the subjects exist. My goal is not simply to show what a person looks like, but to examine, through subjective interpretation, who that person is, wants to be, has been.  Often the subjects' material surroundings also reflect some aspect of personal desire or identity that is linked to the psychological underpinning of the portrait. 



By conveying a feeling for both the inner and outer lives of individuals through expressionistic portraiture, I hope to access a deeper underlying current of relatable human experience.
