I paint out of want and need. When people ask me why I paint, I immediately respond, “It’s about connection.”

“Looks Just Like” mixed media on board,12″ x 12″


It’s a bridge to the common ground I share with others and a direct connection to myself. Perhaps this is what all art is.

My work is about moments, familiar bits and pieces that combine in different ways and make up a life.

“Hard to Believe” mixed media on board, 36″ x 36″


I don’t know when I start a piece which moment I will zero in on.

“Stalemate” mixed media on board” 36″ x 24″


Over the past few years, I have worked on a series around swimmers, pools and water. The swimmers plunge into or emerge out of the water, like the constantly changing moments in any given day; the effort to swim up and out and to breathe.

Sometimes they are anonymous figures clustered or alone. At other time there are faces that tell a story.

“Trumpets on the Beach” mixed media on board, 20″ x 20″


These figures and portraits are about entropy and the history they hold. Mixed in are images of home and structure. Again, a reflection of entropy and survival.

Despite what life has imposed on them, they stand strong.
