Artist Statement

I am a classical/surrealist. I refer to my work as "Comprehensive Portraiture"; the capture of a person's seen and obscured essential world. I originally intended to be a traditional classical portrait painter but there is so much more to a person than what we physically see unless interpreted with some aspects of surrealism. Each and every one of us are unique with an often untold story; my paintings tell that story. My work is a mirror of who we are and to celebrate and be fascinated with ourselves and the world we live in.
