Artist's Statement

Creating hand drawn representational images of what I am seeing onto a two-dimensional surface has been my life's work. In translating this experience into words, I would describe it as a chain of careful observations with each new one built upon the prior foundation. The experience is deeply meditative where the passage of time becomes the painting process. When rendering the sequences of interconnected shapes into the complex form of the female nude, it becomes paradoxically clear that maintaining the overall simplicity of the composition is what gives the piece its impact & lasting resonance. In summation, it is my aim to preserve the immediate impression of the model while in pursuit of defining some sliver of clarity from our observable world.
