May 3 – June 23, 2018

My approach to artwork involves depicting what is felt rather than what is seen. Fascinated by the complexities or ordinary people – their courage, confusion, and resilience – I reveal their vulnerability by focusing on moods, as interpreted by body language, color and gestural brushwork.

Because I spent another career keeping secrets in my national security work and travel abroad for several federal agencies, my current interest is painting universal feelings which remain largely hidden. Many of us cloak ourselves behind a veneer of success and confidence despite situations in our lives which wreak havoc with our emotions. In these artworks I peek into inner emotions as the subjects deal with personal, economic, political and social upheaval.

My goal includes drawing-in the viewer to make a personal interpretation based on his or her own experiences. Ambiguity rules. And, sometimes this is outside the comfort zone, like life.
