Artist's Statement

I learned to draw as a teenager by drawing David Bowie's face over and over and over again (he had a surprisingly long philtrum!). I've advanced only slightly to include other faces in my life. Certain scenes call out to be rendered in paint. I'm drawn to theater stills and trying to capture the drama between figures. I'm also a sucker for dioramas and models of stage sets. My current project is creating layered paintings on wood that feel like the curtain has opened on a stage set.
