RAW AND INTUITIVE

I am a compulsive artist…I paint everyday because I have to!

My images are raw and intuitive. Colors harmonize in unexpected ways and exuberance often collides with angst.

Faces predominate my work, many in frontal gazes that meets the viewer head -on; faces as maps that reveal places we’ve been…or may be going.

In the words of Zorba the Greek—

I embrace everything…the full catastrophe, speaking to the human condition of joy and triumph, suffering and celebration.
