Artist Statement

The images that I create have their roots in snippets of stories that I cull from children's tales, myths and fables, novels from past and present and my own personal experiences. Character development, the quirkier the better, has always fascinated me. I use physiognomy and gesture to depict characters in varying social stances. I'm interested in our secret, rarely revealed egos. Often in my prints, I try to simultaneously show our inner feelings and the outer visages that reflect or shelter those emotions. I want to capture the temporal nature of the person: confident, magnetic, animalistic, materialistic, giddy, downtrodden. I want to show the objects we desire and describe the manner in which we seek them.
