Male: Oil & Mixed Media

Portraits and Figures

To the eye, our human form identifies us as human beings: it is the physical expression of who we are, Homo sapiens. Through this humanness, I am connected to my subjects. In my body I feel my subjects’ gestures, their attitudes, their age, the vitality and expression of their gaze—their energy, their truth.

As an artist, I find the cultural distinctions between “beautiful” and “ugly” irrelevant; it is the miracle of the human form that awes, amazes and fascinates me.  Whether in a gesture painting or a realistic portrait, I seek to capture and present my subjects’ individual truth as profoundly and as intimately as they present it to me.
