ARTIST STATEMENT

“Every portrait painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not the sitter.”
– Oscar Wilde

As an artist, I am searching for my identity through the inherent beauty of the physical human form, the shell of the human spirit, finding reflections of myself in my models.
I work in heavy body acrylics, the fast drying nature of which is perfect for my technique, which uses many quick textured layers, working with palette knives and brushes.
All my paintings are created using only the three primary colors, plus black and white. Every other color is mixed on the palette from those basic colors. This minimal use of color helps me get to the core of my subject. I use shadow and light to bring out depth; to bring out something that appeals to me, a part of myself, through the model.
