Artist Statement

Our lives are simply the pursuit of internal fantasies, complicated by the external realities we confront, as we pass through this plane of existence.  My paintings are representations of the complex texture of human life, temporal and transient, using realism constructed with an expressive visual language that reflects my interpretations of our being, contemporary phrases in the verse of life. Through impressions of our world that speak both to us and about us, my work documents our existence and brings visibility to our shared passage.  I imagine I explore humanity to find meaning in my own life.
