Whether I am painting realistically, or creating mixed media works with a more impressionistic flavor, my focus is almost always the human face or figure brought to life through the interplay of color, shape and form. My art has been described as having an unusual fusion of playfulness with something rather haunting. Regardless of style, there is a unifying air of mystery in all my works that invites questions and personal interpretation. I want the viewer to ask, “What is that person doing? Thinking?” This “interactive imagining” enriches the viewing experience by creating an interplay between the artist, the painting and the observer.
Each piece is composed between two moments…the moment it is conceived and the moment it is completed. All are personal and, I hope, distinctive. No one else could have produced them.
