Artist Statement

Artist Portfolio

I capture snapshot moments in my paintings that viewers may interpret in their own way. I have always been fascinated with people watching, and as a result, it has greatly influenced the direction of my art. I paint what people surround themselves with---their clothes and the mood they convey through body movement. I believe that people select how they want to be seen, and they use their clothing to make that statement. It may be who they are, it may be who they want to be, but it is the observer who “interprets” their presentation.
