In my art, I present beauty in the form of female nudes, flowers, and animals. I believe that beauty can represent a form of truth that is internal and universal because of the shared understanding and perception that beauty can provide. I pay homage to the female nudes because I find them beautiful and exciting; I paint flowers because I find them beautiful; and I paint the male counterparts to the female nudes as animals because I do not find the male body to be exciting, which is why I turn them into animals.

I derive my figurative work from the most pregnant moments, the kind that oscillate between ordinary and extraordinary, and embody sensations as well as instill them. Just as there is an instant between reception of sensation and comprehension of its meaning, a held breath, there is a moment in a work’s development that teeters in between becoming and being. This threshold moment, a resonating tension, drowns out a logical pedigree as well as a point of documented arrival. Instead it may only be self explanatory by its penetrating effect: felt of the body.

I paint resilience but not always through the depiction of the figure. My oil paintings are realistic portrayals of the garbage, trash cans and drain pipes as a way to convey the idea that humans are often required to find something beautiful in a hard situation in order to keep going. The ability of a human being to do this is the essence of resilience.
I am a visual artist based in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA.
