Artist Statement

I draw the subjects of my paintings freely and loosely; I let my feelings guide me while I add color, without any commitment to reality. My figures have no color, genre or face. What is important is their presence and energy. I painted these people using only the feet as symbols of our external differences. These distinctions may or may not represent what others think they do.
