Artist Statement


Characters and stories often appear in my work. They come alive and develop like a protagonist on stage. Sometimes I begin a painting on a certain track only to discover, trough a dialogue with the piece, that it wants to evolve into something else. It could be an expansion of the original theme or a complete departure.
Lately, like so many others,  I’ve been locked away in my studio with more time to paint than ever before and  I’ve noticed so much more to explore than ever before. Previously overlooked subjects abound and tease the imagination. They bait me and cry out for attention.
One thing remains the same. The paintings are only ready for presentation when we are both in agreement. Whether it’s through the visual or performing arts, what I put forth shall ultimately be the result of reflection, exploration and discovery.
