As my work evolves, I continue to look for ways to express what is personal to me.  For the past decade, my work has mostly been a reaction to snapshots of my family and friends.  Often, I paint the pictures that would be typically deleted from the camera.  My interest is not to define a person by the photo, It’s more about capturing a moment in time.

I make my decisions about a painting, first, by my instincts about a snapshot and then the sociological impact of the photos.  I often look for themes in my work, making unrelated photos relate, repeating an image and altering size.  I exaggerate color and use texture to create movement, moving further away from static portraiture.
