As an anthropologist at heart, I discover painting people, realistic or not, remains my favorite subject. More recently, the human form fascinates me like no other. Moreover, all creations and colors of life intrigue me. Using bold hues of oil paint is my favorite medium; it allows the colors to both contrast and blend organically with time, as well as giving the subject a rich texture. I believe the desire to artistically express ourselves is the greatest part of what makes us as humans unique. As a self-taught painter, I continue to explore this concept in my work.
