I have been painting for 30 years and am also a licensed professional counselor and board certified art therapist in private practice. In addition, I design computer cases for Apple and others.
My work can be seen as a study of the complex and sometimes precarious nature of personal relationships. My fascination with human interaction and relational dynamics is evident in the solemnity of the figures and the perspective with which the viewer enters the work. These paintings give pause to a brief moment among the infinite we experience. Coupled or individually positioned, their casual self-reflection strings a tension through the work as though we are voyeurs to a visible but private moment. The banality of the event only sweetens the purpose and sincerity with which the artist has investigated it.
