The human figure as a subject has always fascinated me. I see figurative work as an interpretation of a point in time, representing the person as I see them at that moment. The process is intimate and emotional—and if luck will have it—the portrait captures more than light and shadow. It tells the story of the individual.
My work follows both additive and subtractive methods on linen or a metal plate. These contrary actions of moving pigment to find light and shadow are of one mind and enduring.
