Artist Statement:

I am glad to be living in a time when the pendulum seems to be swinging back from the abstract / conceptual approaches of a hundred years ago to a Nouveau Realism. It’s exciting to see the growing number of artists pushing themselves to create better and better realistic work. I thank the connoisseurs and collectors who support this new Renaissance.

Creating Representational Art in the 21st Century is both challenging and exhilarating. My best work springs from a combination of observed reality and reverie. As I paint, the model becomes a character in an internal “movie”. I try to capture the emotion that springs from that half-imagined narrative.
