Artist Statement & Biography
My acrylic paintings on canvas examine common subject matter that I find extraordinary. I use primitive line work to compose elegant forms with bold hues and challenging color combinations. My intent is to express the essence of my subjects without much extraneous detail. Many of my pieces are inspired by real events, while others are expressions of imagination. While I have historically used animals as the main subjects of my artwork, I have recently used human figures as the main subjects in my work. I am currently most inspired by my children and the picture books that we read together.
