My work is about movement and energy.

Music plays a large role in my painting. I allow my brush to flow gesturally with the rhythm I feel. I create a visual impression of the energy and connection between people using music as a catalyst. I honor the human form as much as I honor the experience of painting.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

The body of my work focuses on three main areas: Nudes, dancers, and abstract figuratives. Included in the figuratives is a new group of pieces exploring New Orleans Jazz, Mardi Gras and the compositional elements of the human figure.
