Artist Statement -

I can’t paint without a contact with a life object or picture of some sort. Hours of silent observation open a path to the object’s beauty from its intrinsic nature. The longer I look and more layers of paint I add “the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically the more real” (Lucian Freud). I have no interest in a search of newness to justify my work; neither have I sought to establish myself via certain painting style or concept. I feel human when I paint, perhaps, because the painting is reminiscent of love and I hope this love is reciprocal.
