I am a painter, sculptor, and printmaker working primarily with the human figure. Over the course of my life I have experimented with numerous styles but my interest in the human figure has been a constant. Early in my career I developed chaotic patterns that seemed to flow directly out of my subjects and into the surrounding canvas. Even today I use abstract patterns, not just for decoration but to tie together my various elements. These connect the figures to each other, and to the viewer.
