I stress the importance of human emotion in my work. The portrait and human figure serve as the images and forms by which I most often express my reflections on life. Stylistically, I am influenced by the expressionist painters. I choose colors and generate a rawness in my work that I hope contributes to the nature of each “personality” on display. Life is both pleasant and difficult, and I’m attempting to demonstrate both possibilities with the sensitivity and compassion we all deserve as human beings.
