No statement can pin down the process of an artist when creating a work that she or he hopes will later be labeled art. My passion is making figurative art: creating, through invention and observation, images that reflect the caring, contentious, vulnerable, elusive, complicated beings called human.
In my work, painting and drawing merge. Sensitive thick/thin line, splotches of color instinctively but strategically placed. No goal of realism in my bones; more the interrupted image. There is often a narrative at play: the whole of a work that calls for a story, or many, even if it’s only in the grasp of a hand or the degree of a smile.
SUNY/Buffalo (Graduate Study); The Art Student’s League (NYC); The School of Visual Art (NYC). My paintings and other works are in collections in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and nationally.
