My subjects are people–whose appearances are often deceiving– hiding their true feelings deep within. In this series, I am trying to reveal some of those buried emotional impulses suppressed by the pressures of daily life.
I began painting almost fifty years ago, continuously experimenting with new materials over the decades. Today, I prefer multiple media combined on the same canvas, endeavoring to achieve a visual and emotional harmony. I am fascinated with mineral pigments for their dense hues and collage for its unexpected textures.
