Self Me!

Self Me!

Artist Statement:

It is all about the story. Whether painting in my favorite medium (oil), drawing digitally or just plain old sketching with pen and pencil, it is always about the story. And for me, the stories revolve around people and figures.

Every pose, tilt and detail has a some kind of anecdote attached to it. A hand that was a vine, an eye that looks away or a faceless specter on the sofa.

I want my viewer to take it from that moment and move the story forward or create their own backstory. 

It could be dark, dramatic, full of action or passive pose of a wry smiling portrait.

My paintings will always tell a story. Whether we share the a narrative or  a different tale, a story has been told.

And I hope you enjoyed it.
