Artist Statement:

For the past several years, my work has focused primarily on the human form. I find inspiration and meditation from attending figure drawing sessions and exploring the expressive marks that convey gesture and emotion. Time slips away as I lose myself in the challenges of anatomy, perspective, foreshortening, curvature, light, and shadow. I take these drawing back to my studio where I ponder over them in search of something that evokes an interest in further developing, embellishing, and abstracting the figures. I transfer the drawings to canvas and begin a deliberate process of applying many thin layers of rich color, exploring the contrast and complement of color theory. The experience of painting becomes subconsciously expressive and transcendent, demonstrating the inner-workings of imagination and yielding vibrant representations of organic form.
