I am a Contemporary Figurative Oil Painter. I paint the nude exclusively. Why?
The concise answer is that I have never desired to paint anything else, and it is my intention to follow this profound impulse to where it will.
The figure has the capacity to express the human experience in its broadest sense, yet can also reveal a transient moment in an individual one. It can tell a story or pose a question. Painting in oil means that time must be spent. As in life, the end point is the result of a journey; I start with an intention but allow the painting to evolve. I allow it be authentic; with imperfection, but without judgment. It has been my challenge and joy to reveal my artistic voice in this way.
I thank my loving Husband and Muse who both inspires and travels this journey with me.
