My focus and fascination is the abstraction of the figure – a continuous theme throughout my career as an artist.
The figure and its emotional impact always resonated for me as a courtroom artist and found its way into my work as a fine artist.
But in my painting and mixed media works, I am freed from any boundaries and am more open to intuition, dream images and improvisation.
In this process of discovery, a narrative eventually emerges, however illusive it appears. It is often cloaked in mystery, eroticism and ambiguity.
