The content of my work is inspired by my love of translating what attracts me visually to others. I am drawn to expressing the figure and the landscape in colorful and textural ways. My work is immediate, it is cathartic in a way. There is quick brush stroke, thick chunky color in places, scribbled lines, and a moment that can not be imitated. My landscape references are from places close my heart, the beaches on the Jersey shore and California. My figurative work concentrates mostly on the female form, but I do enjoy combining the figure with the landscape as an abstract element. For me when identifying with the figure as the subject, its about translating the moment or memory of time. Details of face and body may be obscured, but rather I’m interested in that emotion that existed from that memory, or moment while creating.
