Mixed media on paper

In my work, I use the human form as a vehicle for creating personal vignettes. Often formal and sometimes theatrical, each figure serves as an assertion of a state of being. They are artificial moments, but are invented in support of very real sentiments. I am constantly examining human relationships through these devised images: assigning roles, removing context, arranging objects and offering it up for reinterpretation. By employing my own sense of visual symbolism, I develop a poetic description of the presence I wish to convey.
