I am a San Francisco-based artist, a painter who works in both the figurative and abstract genres. My figurative work reinterprets historical, political, mythical and cultural themes. I paint using oils and acrylics from both life and photographic references. Drawing is an integral part of my practice.
Working in series form satisfies my need to deeply explore a subject. A project usually starts with a personal connection to a particular subject; it evolves as I discover and digest further connections, perceptions, and emotions. While each painting has its own identity, it is nonetheless explicitly linked to the others in the series. Viewers may find entry points into the work, which I hope creates an opportunity for a rich dialogue.
