my evolution

Exploring the human condition, our stories and how we treat each other is my continual theme. I want my art to have an impact on the world. To inform, reflect and evoke strong emotions. I believe in the power of art. That a work of art can make a positive change in the world.

When I paint, it's not a physical reality I'm after but an expressive and emotional one. The people in my paintings are depicted at a particular moment in their lives. I want people to look at the men and women in my paintings and wonder where they came from and where will they end up. Showing just enough of the story to spark a discussion.

For many years I was an actor. But then I realized that I had my own ideas and worlds I needed to express so I expanded into writing and directing. The realization that a painting doesn’t need to be seen, read or heard for any required stretch of time started pulling me. Now I feel like I'm writing and directing frantically with paint. One glance and there you have it, an instantaneous experience.
