Growing up in the city of Philadelphia, drawing chalk animals in the street, especially horses, I am drawn to gesture and movement in all living things. You can recognize a person or an animal just from the tilt of their head or shift of their weight. All living beings have this identifiable quality. I love capturing this quality in my paintings.
I want to paint the uniqueness of any subject, figures, animals or still life.
My intention with my series of dancers is to show their gesture and dedication to their artform.
With my animals I want to show an emotional side of them in addition to their gesture.
This past year and a half has shuttered the dancers performance sites. Looking forward to seeing these "Athlete's of God" in person again.
