I work in a loose and vibrant style using pastels, charcoal, acrylics and oils in unexpected ways that focuses on the personality and energy of the subject. Color, form, and line tell a story that pushes beyond traditional portraits or representational paintings. The symbols and metaphors used spark curiosity and explore what it means to be human.Influences include Gaugin, Van Gogh and Georgia O’Keefe. Inspirations include people, nature and concepts of hope, change and power. My work is in private collections all over the world.
“In my paintings, I like to capture objects at a very spellbinding moment with the fluctuations of light and dark to remind viewers of the beauty in everyday life. My goal is to imbue the viewers with rich sensations; something will last through time and touch people deeply.”
