Artist Statement

I am a realist painter whose focus is psychological portraits.

My portraits are simple, quiet and introspective. My images are presented in a straightforward and unadorned fashion. My motivation is to express emotion and create a contemporary statement.

As a lifetime student, I strive to see more deeply and speak more clearly. Though I frequently work from photos, my work from life contributes to my understanding of the limitations of photography. I study anatomy, figure drawing and plein-air painting.

These things challenge my skills, test my humility, and inform my work.
