Most of my work focuses on the human figure. I am fascinated with the particular, so I’m drawn to portraiture. My experience is urban. I paint individuals I know, and more recently in their specific settings. I’ve also been painting “portraits” of sculptures that I encounter in museums or in private collections. I select works that “speak” to me like living people. I hope to achieve a level of the uncanny through a tactile approach to facture, building form through color. Scale and size vary: I welcome the challenges of working in various scales from larger than life to miniature.
