My passion for drawing came from my father. He was an amazing cartoonist, sign painter, artist and comedian. It never occurred to me to do anything else. My work comes from the inside, my dark side, my obvious, my heart…

I love working with pastels. There are no tools or brushes between me and the image that makes itself known as I work. It is intimate – my fingers touch the work directly. The color pallet is dramatic and passionate, the textures and flourishes take on a life of their own. I am always happy to greet each new image that comes to life on my easel.

I don’t know if half the time I’m even present while I work, anyone who knows me can attest to that, no matter what I’m doing.  When I’m finished it’s up to you to decide whether it matters or not. I am simply the portal to this world from the universe where these images live.
