I paint because I cannot imagine my life without
painting. I’m a figure painter because I’m intrigued by the shape and
form of human creatures. Although they often appear amorphous, the
figures are always women.
The figures in my paintings represent people I know or have
pulled from my imagination. For years, I painted from life, but now I prefer to
be in the studio alone, no model, no company. I invent these women, some with
vulnerable personalities, some with the strength to transport them to another
planet; but they all tell a story, sometimes in a language I don’t even
For years I painted imagery which was easy, safe, and seemed
to come off my brush like honey oozing from the hive. Now, I’m making what I
believe is a more courageous mark, full of renewed commitment. I’m failing as
often as I meet with success, but those failures become the under painting or
history for a new work.
I simply want to leave my mark.
