My traditional artwork has consistently shared a broad spectrum of media and technique. Drawing from life is my most intriguing process because I love the challenge of capturing the human figure. Each portrait creates a small investigation into my perspective. I paint with ink and watercolor to explore techniques that feature emotional plasticity, such as dripping, splattering, and running.
Photographic compositions appear to me when a transient light strikes certain objects or people. The light reaches out at something that’s hidden in a dark area, and sometimes it’s a stark contrast while other times it is merely a subtle highlight. These photographs have a moody quality that suggests unknown territories for the viewer to explore in the dark.
