Artist StatementPeople interest me, faces above all else. A lot can be
derived from a face: sentiment, attitudes, intensity. It is in these faces that
I find myself absorbed in the emotions of the people around me and their
relationships to those around them. Every image has an emotion and the paint
helps to draw it out.

The nature of the photograph defines the style in which the
painting takes on. The paint can capture anything from the sharpness of a
comical instant to the ethereal softness of a more intimate memory. If photographs
capture moments and paintings convey moods, then by painting a photograph I am personifying
the emotions on the canvas.

Some pictures feel most comfortable to me in coffee. Sepia
toning gives the photograph warmth and enhances the timeless-ness of everyday
life which the coffee allows me to do. While other more vivid moments deserve
to be submerged in the colors that surround them.

My collection of work is of loved ones captured in those
fleeting seconds only a photograph could hold. Some give a glimpse into a life,
while others capture a moment worth living.Artist Resume
