My background as a painter informs the way I see and interpret the world around me. There is a constant interplay between form, color, light and shadow while references are drawn from art history. Paintings by Lucas Cranach, and Giorgione, whose works have both a beauty and crucial provocative element that I find enticing, beckon. My intent is to present images rooted in art history while touching upon a personal desire to face my own mortality. My ultimate goal is that these images will raise a shared bond emphasizing that we each are a heartbeat away from our historic past.
