My paintings are intimate; they reflect places I see, people I know, faces from old family photographs. In the brushwork,
the hand of the artist is clearly visible. I want to invite the
viewer to a place where the paint itself shares the spotlight
with the subject, where all elements--hill and sky, figure and
ground, light and shadow--interlock like the pieces of a
jigsaw puzzle to create a unified world.
I have always worked chiefly in oil but have recently switched to water
soluble oil out of environmental considerations.
