Artist Statement

Human emotions are as universal as the ideals of beauty. The need to love and be loved is strongest of all. It is a theme which has preoccupied writers and artists since the beginning of culture. I return to it repeatedly, recalling characters from literature or opera. My invented portraits are nearly all solitary and often are of children. They are haunted by a solitude experienced by those who find themselves strangers in a strange land, simultaneously longing to escape and connect.
