My love of painting comes from an early exposure to the world's best art museums throughout Europe and the United States. I feel connected to history and want my work to convey that. Contemporary art is being in our century; building on the past yet connected to the now.
Although I love abstract, using color and large brush strokes to express movement and space, I have recently gone back to the figure. By elevating manual laborers to mythic proportions, I attempt to remind us of the dignity found in hard work.
I have a love affair with oils and never stray long with another medium.
