Save Me

My current work deals with figures in water and is a continuation of my interest in body language, emotion and narrative. My intention is to extend the concept of a portrait or portrayal of a figure using the water to express something more about…

Adaptability

Adaptability can be good for the soul and one’s work.  I have just completed 4 weeks at the Ondarte Residency in Akumal Mexico and several new paintings with a welcome return to figurative work. It’s easy for us to play it safe, but then what’s the point of making safe art? I highly recommend a residency experience for those of you who are looking for a way to move forward in your work. When you put yourself in a position of vulnerability; a totally new environment; surrounded by a group of…See More

About my artwork
Over the past 3 decades I have been exploring body language and movement in order to invite the viewer to relate to figures, animals and other subjects in a unique way. Close-ups combined with distorted perspective and tight cropping, allow for an intriguing deeper emotional connection with the subject.

My latest work explores figures with the dualities of their ‘potential’ hidden psyches incorporated through the use of distorted reflections in water and through the use of shadows. I am interested in the idea of expressing an alter ego within a figurative representation, perhaps to reveal an underlying ‘darker’ side, or a hidden trait or association, or even a truer ‘self’.
