My primary interest is in the human condition expressed through the human form.  I divide my practice between working from nature, a very deliberate process of building an internal visual library, and intuitive drawing/painting. Because I approach drawing without a pronounced idea or narrative in mind, emotion reigns.  What comes from my hand when I draw is always unexpected and often unsettling, if not disturbing to me.

The serendipity of the outcome is the main reason why I make art.
