||My interest has always been in people. To me the human figure is the most direct way of expressing human emotions and the human condition – the most direct way of communicating. I have always drawn and painted from the model. At times I use my drawing as starting points for my paintings. Using predominantly acrylic, I work directly, continually changing, developing, and refining the ideas on the canvas.
Boldness with sensitivity is the quality I admire in art, and this is the manner in which I work. This comes through in the drawing, the color, the value and the pattern.
Each viewer interprets my work from the sum of his or her own life. In fact, among a whole group of observers, each will interpret a work in her or her own unique way. The important thing is that a work evokes interpretation – causes communication. As an artist I communicate through paint.
