South Carolina

Artist Statement Submitted 2015

As a narrative artist, I am fascinated by people - our virtues, sorrows, and foibles. Using the figure, my goal is to inject human comedy and tragedy into my work. I often use myths, poetry, plays, and music as inspiration. My source or starting place for the work is never visual, rather an idea, a germ of an idea, or theme that I attempt, through the act of painting, the better to understand: a search for meaning through the vocabulary of painting.
