Original Acrylic Paintings:
A contemporary approach to portraiture of women. The distinctive, ever present, hair and unique palette bring this series to life. Hiding the eyes of each woman introduces a sense of mystery leaving room for individual interpretation. I find that the covered eyes produce a need to reconcile underlying messages, bringing to life the voice of each woman I paint. Unmistakable similarities bring cohesion to the series while also welcoming each lady’s unique story to express itself.
The Wisdom of Birds
A contemporary approach to portraiture, I capture my love of birds and the inspiration they provide. As this series develops, I note how simple movement can convey strong and compelling emotions, further increasing my love and inspiration for the subject. Presenting each subject as the focal point, removed from the broader natural surroundings, I provide a more intimate look at the animal. Through this representation, I hope to honor the wildness in each bird.
