Artist Statement -

Figurative work has a place in my endeavors. However, the subjects are not portraiture. The paintings use elements of exaggeration to express deeper element of life. I sometimes paint diptychs and triptychs.
Now that I am doing print designs on the computer, I find that being able to create suites of images in which I can shift colors and create beautiful blends is vey satisfying.
I still do watercolors.
