Bio

Pay attention to the little things that reveal the whole. Recognize the old things (they are witnesses). The world is small and full.

I address the human condition. Sometimes I use the figure to emphasize gesture, rhythm, or physical quirks. Segmented body parts are explanations and estimations of the distance between the body and the spirit.

Besides the figure, reoccurring symbols endeared or in fault enforce sentiment. I paint situations and/or impressionable shapes to create sentiment and respect for life.

I paint the distance of my hands from my heart.
