Artist's Statement

Before I pick up my brush, I am looking deeply at my subjects, whether from photo or life, and thinking how can I love them into being? Each is a journey of wonder, in which I seek to evoke a connection with the subject to the canvas. In the age of the selfie I use oil and/or water based paints, inks, pencils, even occasionally collage, to do the same. Some might consider the end result to be representational, but I call it expressionism.
