A celebration of human existence.

I explore the figure considering angles, motions, shadows, weight, line and anatomy. I pursue the limbs of the human form with distortion to allude to the energy and action rather than the true realism of the pose.

Capturing and expressing human life with gestural marks created by observation using feeling derived by visual sensation; enables a raw expressive mark entwining and forming into the figure.

Thus I pursue and celebrate the beauty of the human form all the while capturing our emotions that is conveyed through the lyrical motions throughout the body.
