“There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual — become clairvoyant. We reach then into reality. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness, such are the moments of our greatest wisdom.”
— Robert Henri

My work derives from my responses to fleeting moments in life. In the same tradition as Vermeer, Hopper and Hammershøi; I strive to capture the beauty in the everyday. My subject is the figure. My interest lies in celebrating its majesty through pageantry of rich color and vibrant light.
