I am a soul catcher…
My passion is painting people.
As I paint, I get lost in reckless abandonment, yet painting people keeps me somewhat grounded and allows me to continue my process of self-identity.
The better the connection to my subject, the more of “me” comes through on the canvas. It’s not that I paint my own features, but I reconcile parts of myself through the work.
My hopes, dreams, fears, adequacies and inadequacies are ever present in the strokes as the connection becomes morphed between myself and my sitter.
Sharing even a silent conversation allows me to respond to a certain twinkle in an eye or another personal expression that is uniquely them as I strive to portray the spirit of that person.
