As a figurative artist for over fifteen years, I am driven by the natural architecture of nature and the beauty of the human form. I continue to share their offerings with my art through the study of texture and light.
My paintings and drawings begin as a toned canvas or paper. I carefully pull the lights out using a subtractive method to reveal the subject, similar to a silver print emerging in a developing tray. This method is immediate and gratifying because I can manipulate the composition and form early on in the creative process.Type your paragraph here.
Thought provoking, bold and strong is how I best describe my finished work. Artists such as Caravaggio and De La Tour have inspired me to take their use of chiaroscuro and tenebrism to develop my personal style which I call “magic realism”. Magic realism incorporates the high contrast between light and dark in addition to using motion, unfocused and focus elements throughout the composition.
As a visual artist I speak through my work. I tell stories with snapshot-like in the moment imaginary like polaroids of the past. My goal is to create dynamic work that stands the test of time, technically and aesthetically.
