My artwork: it is an exploration of the drama, the emotional complexities, the mental and spiritual realities of this human experience we are suspended in, and the universal truths that transcend the boundaries of social class, politics, nationalities, religion, and even time itself. My large oil paintings, monotypes, and bronze sculptures delve into universal matters of the human heart, such as love, joy, passion, beauty, kindness and hope. They also explore the dark regions of loss, pain, rejection, stress, fear, despair and relationship complexities. By dealing in emotional truths with a common human denominator, I strive to have my esthetic explorations relevant, moving, and timeless in their application and interpretation. My aim is to speak to the hearts of those sensitive enough to understand this visual vocabulary.
I offer small group printmaking classes in my studio, and private instruction. I am also available to teach workshops across the country, or across the world (as in the New Zealand workshops above)! Please contact me for further details.
