  • Artist’s Statement

    Expressive and bold, emotionally textured.

    Many of my pieces are completely spontaneous, created with a feverish energy using the tools at hand. Often I want to capture a moment, or emotional experience - in order to record it in a beautiful way.

    My love of ballet and dance is undeniable. Often I close my eyes and escape to the depths of the inky blue stage and gleaming white stage lights, grasping my palette knife & Prussian Blue paint to record the glistening swans moving across the water. A deep appreciation of the human figure has emerged from this. Observing the fluidity, strength & grace of dancers provides endless inspiration for me.

    The unique element in my work is my fascination with deep inky, earthy hues to render form in a seductive and rugged way.
