"One's art goes as far and as deep as one's love goes". Andrew Wyeth
Since the age of 6, I remember thinking of myself as an artist. I had the benefit of having a mother who would take us to famous museums all around the world since we lived in many different countries. Surprisingly, the paintings and sculptures in the museums spoke to me in an intimate language deep inside my soul. I was able to interpret their stories instantly. I loved to be within these museum walls, surrounded by art and beauty, and "read" their stories. This was my language.
Today still, I'm enthralled with this visual language. I try to make visible this language in every piece I paint. I have gone from Realism to Abstract Expressionism looking for this. There is a "joy" or "beauty" I'm after in all my work and I seek to communicate this to the viewer. The joy of life, the beauty of life.
Portraiture, surprisingly, something I seem to be good at, allows me to make visible the person's essence, or spark, or love....that uniquely typical thing about every person. It is after all, this uniqueness what defines us and what we leave behind.
I continuously focus on achieving an ever clearer visual language of communication and strive to produce pieces that enrich people's lives.
