ABOUT THE ART

I try to find beauty where most people would never dream of looking - winding backstreets, narrow alleys and darkened doorways...
Based on four elements - light, color, dynamic composition
and unique subject matter, I paint the sadness, joy, hope and despair of humanity within a social context.
I work with acrylic paint on gessoed masonite panel - three
coats and lightly sanded between each coat. My work is
?contemporary realism? - a combination of larger, big brush impressionist strokes and subtle squares juxtaposed with highly defined focal points.
The subjects and style of my work are in constant evolution
as I discover new places and new techniques. This most recent series of works depicts the daily struggle in Cuba. Not just paintings, these pieces are also a collection of historical documents of a country anchored in the past, but on the verge of dramatic change.
