I am an admirer of the ordinary, of the common. I feel a sense of community with my subject matter, making my work very personal.
The human form can be glorious and ugly, graceful and vulgar. My figures are not idealized and therefore too unattractive for some viewers to admire. None the less, their vulnerability and humanity often makes them larger than life and heroic. Whatever the subject matter, I approach with respect and candor.
My landscapes are not just settings waiting to be inhabited, rather they are the result of human presence.
Every act of viewing brings a new edition of a piece. The visual baggage we all carry with us brings an involuntary concept to each spectator. I welcome the diverse response my work elicits.
