I am a lifelong Manhattanite and finally my work is reflecting my connection to my city. My Current series is of New York characters; everyday people whose magnificence I am excited to reveal. When an idea comes to me for a painting, I visualize a great deal initially which is the actual start of my creating process. The next step for me is drawing. As I draw, I am seeking the core meaning of my subject; unearthing whatever it is that has gotten my attention and that I am yearning to convey.
And then with my paintings where much is unfinished or expressed through varying paint application, medium and color, I am ultimately expressing whatever I have discovered emotionally about that subject. As much is said with my color fluency, varied lines or deliberate form as with the untouched spaces or abstracted moments. Angles, lines, shapes, spaces and lots of rich color and paint allow the viewer to find his or her own meaning in and emotional connection with what I have created with my art.
I am shaped by my art and through it I am able to express myself while connecting with the world wholeheartedly.
