“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

I create artwork because the beauty of the process is the best mind altering state I’ve ever known. The need to touch, feel, respond and communicate human emotions within the landscape of the human form is enormous. The subject of human beings and their interactions is an endless source of fascination for me; hence, most of my work is figurative and evocative, focusing on the variety of everyday human gesture.

I paint in many ways and with many emotions. While there is always a thread which stitches my work together; such as color and subject, my brushwork ranges from tiny, detailed strokes to wide explosions. It all depends on my mood, my subject’s mood and makes for the diversity and expressive creativity I crave. I am a member of the Portrait Society of America.
