Artist Statement

  My work combines the figure with still life, landscape and interiors.  The figures do not exist in a void because we are shaped by our environments, physically and psychologically.  The images of my family and friends are portraits, but also serve as metaphors for all people in their search for meaning, fulfillment and beauty in the modern world. 

Content and story are important elements of my vision, but just as important is the physical application of the paint.  Color, shape, texture and craft are essential elements in the beautiful objects I want my paintings to be.
