ARTIST
STATEMENT
My primary
interest is in portraiture with an emphasis on capturing the essence or spirit
of the subject.  The portraits
range from a minimalist  style to a
more traditional, painterly treatment of the face.  I sometimes use beeswax over the portrait which creates and
interesting texture and can give an ethereal aspect to the painting.  I enjoy capturing the many beautiful
faces of different cultures, children, and the elderly.
I also enjoy
exploring still life and endless possibilities to represent the beautiful and
special objects in our lives.
The best
advice I have ever gotten as an artist is “Paint what you love.”  I guess that is what I am doing.
