Artist's Statement

I paint the human figure. My imagery is invented, yet informed by art historical works. Rather than use external sources — such as preliminary sketches — I allow the mental and physical process of painting to drive the work. Through layering the paint, I eventually find an image that hopefully feels like it has lived in humanity for a long time, like it comes from a storehouse of existing images that still speak to us because our emotional palette has not changed.
