My artwork takes pieces of the Elizabethan, Victorian, and Deco Era and mixes them with modern elements of today to create a portrait and environment that is full of life and meaning. There is a sadness in the eyes of my oils, a longing as if the relationships in each painting are incomplete, lacking a partner or lover. Some are ruling monarchs, while others are wealthy class that are alone or longing to be joined as a couple. Perhaps even some have experienced the loss of a lover as they put them to rest and move on with their lives. I enjoy hiding faces within my canvases, and enjoy producing paintings within paintings, so much of my work has paintings embedded in the background or spirits and faces lurking about.
My preferred medium is oil, as I enjoy the richness it provides.
My sculpture is an exact reflection of my paintings, and very often mimics characters that are painted in oil first, and then become 3-D later as I realize my obsession with one or the other is not complete. I am usually finished when I feel their story has been told in both mediums.
