Artist Statement
I paint the human figure. Why?
The concise answer is that I have never desired to paint anything else, and it is my intention to follow this impulse to where it will. The figure has the capacity to express the human experience in its broadest sense, yet can also reveal a transient moment in an individual one. It can tell a story or pose a question. Painting in oil means that time must be spent. As in life, the end point is the result of a journey; I start with an intention but allow the painting to evolve. I allow it be authentic - with imperfection, without judgment. It has been my challenge and joy to reveal my artistic voice in this way.
"Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter            do good things" Edgar Degas
