A LIFE EXAMINED
I love stories –I tell stories through my paintings – I collect stories in my paintings.
My paintings are not an attempt to simplify but to glory in the mystery and paradoxes of life – not to give in to dismay caused by multitude of causes and consequences that are inherent in each experience but to revel in complexities of life. Through my figurative work I attempt to tell stories of ordinary people that have been made extraordinary by courage and determination. The subject at first might appear as a contemplative face but, upon closer examination, the story of the person unfolds by and by.
