Statement

The portraits are drawn from personal acquaintances. I feel I have been successful if I can reveal some interesting personality trait in each of my subjects. 

Additional works represent a foray into Social Commentary. While essentially representational, these pieces combine photographic observations with everyday elements and symbols designed to provoke a thoughtful response …humorous and otherwise.

In a general sense I have maintained recognizable forms while attempting to break up color into discrete shapes. I expect the future of this stylistic journey to be an interesting one. 

Materials include acrylic and oil paint; gessoed board and canvas.
