I paint scenes in oils that convey my insights about people. These scenes focus on relationships, or introspection, within the context of daily life. These paintings depict the instant that when caught unaware, subjects reveal more about themselves than they realize, or that they might not want anyone to know. This moment becomes an analogy to understand and appreciate experiences that shape our lives. When a student, Conceptualism was a dominant art form. My current work, while in the realist form, relies upon the art historical and mid-twentieth century visual culture, to incorporate the conceptual while moving forward into the twentieth-first century. Three years ago, after a long hiatus from my painting while working in the non profit sector, I returned full time to painting.
