Portrait and figurative painting is my passion. The human body conveys emotions and energy, together forming the foundations of human connection. My work looks to interpret these connections through the interplay of background and subject. Whether it’s a slight tilt of the chin, or slope of the shoulder, I strive for those subtle nuances that inspire the story. I experiment with different mediums - charcoal, pastels, ink and acrylic paints - often on wood panels. My most recent works have combined charcoal and acrylic on vellum paper, exploring the texture and tones of each.
The process of creating an art piece forces me to live a conscious life in the service of connecting more deeply with my subjects.
