Artist Statement

After enjoying a long career, which spanned over 40 years and included working as a caricaturist, editorial illustrator, and medical illustrator, I am now immersed in traditional oil painting. I work with the figure; people fascinate me, which contributes to my ability to capture a likeness. I'm a portrait artist, but I like to think that my paintings are more than just mirroring a person's features, that I capture a moment, or their essence, that depicts who we are. People are all about their relationships with each other, their pets, and the surroundings that we all live. Incorporating the landscape, still life, their loves and sorrows fascinate me: life, fascinates me… people, energize me. I look to translate the extraordinary ordinary, in my paintings, which I find so intriguing and, so beautiful!
