I began my education as an artist in the academic study of the human figure. It is through these studies that I became indirectly aware of the inherent mysteries of the body and how the inner self is manifest through the physical being of the body. This indirect awareness led me to an expressive dialogue about the inner self where figurative form moved from a representation of the physical structure to a structure based on the inner self. As I have become more directly aware of this relationship -- which has been the driving force behind the creative path that is mine -- I grow more fascinated with the relationships that exist not just between body and self, but between individuals, between the individual and the universal, and between the infinite (that which cannot be defined physically) and the finite. I see that the inner self is manifest in the physical and that we can learn of the former from the latter. My work is the result of the dialogue that comes from what I am able to observe and discover of these relationships.
It is my desire to discuss through painting the aspects of existence that are often overlooked by society – the struggle, turmoil, triumph and oddity of the self.
