Dacia Gallery's SoHo Art Show in New York City, October 12th, 2019

ARTIST STATEMENT

I use realistic painting techniques to create atmospheric figurative artwork.  As my paintings become more narrative, they increasingly draw us in.  We want to know the story behind the painting.  As I continue to develop my style, I am adding surreal elements, such as the background figures in Sheba and Princess Dreaming, and I am also experimenting with mystical themes, such as Tarot cards in The Enchantress.  Creating art that tells a story while putting us in a perfect moment is my main goal.

 

In addition to my figurative work, I also paint animals and landscapes inspired by my travels abroad.  I recently exhibited these works in two solo exhibitions at the Yellow Barn Gallery: Animal Kingdom and World Traveler.
