My painting is a response to life experience, environment, ancestors -- seen through the themes and ideas in the history of art. Figures are based on people I know or aspire to know. The means is a traditional method of oil painting, expressed through personal storytelling, exploring the beauty of the everyday, the intensity of relationships between people and their surroundings.
Sources begin with images, ideas or photographs I respond to, and further develop with research and sketches. I expand on the visual through color, brushwork and storytelling. A viewer might see their own truth in the resulting picture. The painted image explores relationships, responses, ambiguities, and the shifts of experience and time.
