Artist Statement

I love the extremes in life. High contrasting values, colors and rhythms best express my idea of the intenseness I feel. Above all, a working rhythm with media, using it with confidence allows for maximum connection to emotion. I love the humor of animation in drawing as well as the dark rich contrasts in Rembrandt's etchings. I love the energy of Susan Rothenburg's brush and the naked humanism of Alice Neel. I strive for truth of form and content.
