"Figures are my inspiration. Painting life is an energizing & spontaneous event for me. Color is my passion. I love the never-ending search for exciting and compelling colors. Emotion is my glue. I'm drawn to ending search for exciting and compelling colors. Emotion is my glue. I'm drawn to capturing the emotional spontaneity before me, and the beauty of the human form."
