For much of the last forty years, the human form has been at the center of my artistic focus. My subjects are people, not only because I find painting the human figure challenging and rewarding, but also because I’m fascinated with human faces, expression, movements and characters.
When looking for a subject I look for someone who has an interesting face or an unusual presence, someone who creates a strong emotional response in me. Faces talk to me even when a person is silent.
I believe that a true portrait must be both a likeness of the subject and an artistic interpretation. I STRIVE TO TELL STORIES THROUGH MY WORK, USING VIBRANT COLOR COMBINED WITH A REALISTIC STYLE, TO EVOKE AN EMOTIONAL RESPONSE.
