I work with figures and faces, the lines and traces left by life and state of mind on the material matter of our being.
Working from imagination, from life and sometimes from photographic or drawn reference, depending always on the subject, I look for the most appropriate way to express that which fascinates me, whether or not I can put a name to it.
I examine the world through both imaginary figures and faces and the forms I find in myself and in those of people who are close to me.
I am currently working on a series of paintings of my grandmother. These paintings come from some black and white photographs we took together when she was age 98. I asked if she would pose nude and she said, “Well, if it’s for Art and for my granddaughter…”
Other projects, artwork & texts:
Burn art. Why?
Drawing is a dance. I search for the flow movement and of gesture and the structures from which they overflow.
Etchings of musicians and other strange familiars.
After a long while of looking I felt very attached to this painting, not it’s miniature reproduction on screen, but the vibrating body of the canvas itself.

A portrait of the artist, through allegory of the Duck Headed Man.
Two floors of enormous canvases, head after head emerging from disrupted space or poised, static and clean, cut from a violence of abstracted shapes. It is wonderful to see such a great expanse of uncomfortable artwork.
A mythological story world of strange people and creatures in which the drawings came first and the words follow…
