My work is based on the anxiety of humankind in the 21st century. My relationship with the tactile qualities of the paint surface speaks to the London School – flesh as meat. I work from life since painting for me is an emotional response to a direct visual experience.

Most recently my works have been exploring our concept of race, gender politic and our need to marginalize each other resulting in our current epoch of a society of “lone poets.”
