Portraits & Figures
I work primarily with the human form because of its limitless possibilities to hold and express feeling, emotion and gesture. The portrait and figure have such massive meaning for us. At the end of the day it is us—our being, our dreams, our fears, our memories and experiences, our past and our future.
I’ve learned that for me, effectively composing with the figure requires an intellectual dive into the human condition. I love that each piece becomes a journey, offering a better understanding of myself and the world around me.
When working on a figure or portrait I always feel grounded by the tradition and work of centuries of artists before me. This link is part of the gift of being an artist.
