"I capture snapshot moments in my paintings that viewers may interpret in their own way. I have always been fascinated with people watching, and as a result, it has greatly influenced the direction of my art. I paint what people surround themselves with---their clothes and the mood they convey through body movement. I believe that people select how they want to be seen, and they use their clothing to make that statement. It may be who they are. It may be who they want to be. But, it is the observer who “interprets” their presentation. Sometimes the human figure has become secondary in my paintings---sometimes partially shown and at other times totally eliminated---to focus on the garment chosen and the environment. My paintings convey the moods and attitudes that people exude---whether it is sensuality, playfulness, style, or power. Body language is louder, in its message, than the words we use."
