Artist Statement

Celebrating timeless beauty through powerful art. Beauty inspires me. I seek grace in the lines and form of the female figure – to me, the ultimate beauty. There is nothing I would rather paint and my art is a reflection of that classical ideal.

 

Enduring and timeless, my original paintings preserve and celebrate my ideals of beauty and honor the grace, strength and complexity of the female spirit.

 

I direct my creative energies at producing epic original fine art nude and figurative artworks on specially prepared canvas and hand-grinded metal. Most are painted life-size and larger, featuring a contemporary approach to the time-honored figurative and art nude genres. My imagery bursts out of traditional art forms leaving viewers appreciating its beauty, detail and sensual nature.

 

My current Pearl Series features beautiful muses and pearl illusions over specially-prepared canvas. These pieces include dynamic effects and techniques, which are often integrated into my metal creations. They also exhibit a level of detail found in all of my canvas originals.

 

My metal paintings have been compared to sculpture and holographic mediums – there’s a dimensionality and motion visible in every artwork. I consider carefully the interaction of form with the metal. Orchestrated metal working techniques enhance the message of the image by directing the light in specific ways. Its a contemporary embrace of light and form.

 

The use of imagery and materials in my work is inspired and intentional. Along the way I am creating manifestations of the unexpected, provoking the viewer to explore new and perhaps unexplored ideals of beauty – to see beyond the figure and interpret the deeper message in the piece.
