Artist Statement:
"My intent is to create oil portraits surrounding figuration but speak in a language of abstraction freshness. Working with traditional methods as tools, as well as creating accidental results with the palette knife and other utensils. Making either successful or inaccurate strokes, each layer accumulates after the other to complete the painting. My goal is to discover and make my own interpretation of undercover personalities from the photos that I use as reference. Reduction of forms and colors creating landscapes or maps of portraits trying to capture the underlying dilemma we all face"
