About My Artwork

My work is focused on exploring the idea of sensual femininity. Because the world around me is filled with powerful sensual images. I strive to make the viewer appreciate these rich images by incorporating them into my paintings and sculptures.

The images I create are more than the realistic portrayal of a flower, vase, bowl or figure. With each painting, I continue to explore line, mass, volume, shape, and composition while utilizing color and color theories.

By putting to work various theories and techniques, I am able to encourage the viewer to scrutinize the world in which he lives. In doing so, I hope that after seeing one of my paintings with a newfound desire to look at the world around him more closely.

The paintings and sculptures I make have been called photorealistic, super-photorealistic, or hyper-photorealistic. I suppose, it is only a matter of semantics based on the scale of the art I create.
