My art is essentially an emotional visual response to life and the world we live in. I work hard to make my images intense and interesting. But if I can engage myself and others on an emotional level as well, I think that's the greater accomplishment. The human figure will probably always be my primary subject matter. I like manipulating lines, shapes, colors and textures to make designs; but to me the human figure itself is the most compelling design. Not only does the figure form foundations for a wide range of interesting compositions, but it provides a powerful way to connect with the viewer. Most of my figures are drawn from my imagination.
