In my paintings I use subtle tonal transitions to explore somewhat romantic aspects of human existence. Large-scale portraits create a sense of intimacy while dark tones suggest an ominous sense of unease. These disturbing figures may evoke the darker things that shape our lives, uncertainty and mystery. The solitude of these often forlorn figures creates a sense of empathy for internal struggles, haunting memories and emotions.
