Artist's Statement — My Works, My Stories

I try to reveal the quiet drama of daily life and the essence of a place. Each of my works typically tells a story.

I work both with oils and with mixed media. The mixed media works are painted with a unique technique I developed, involving colored inks and oil pastels, which produces the extraordinarily vivid colors for which my paintings are known.

I am drawn to specific - and yet universal – observations of people and places. I would like those who view my paintings to consider the people who inhabit the works and what they are doing and thinking and feeling. And why it matters.
