Artist Statement

My figurative work demands a delicate balance of grace and fervor, and is about process rather than product. The pieces are painted by drizzling paint from a spoon, giving the illusion of figures in flux. Influenced by both ancient Chinese Calligraphy painting and the figurative works of the Expressionists my figures focus on emotion and movement rather than portraiture. They are more of a mirror reflecting back on the moments of creation than a static and opaque canvas dressed in the colors of finality.
