MORE FIGURATIVE WORK
I have most recently turned my focus back to the figure after many years of painting objects with figure-like characteristics. I have created bodies of work focused on fruit, foliage and even scooters that had the emotion, sensuality and implied relationships of figures.I am determined to confront the figure and work through the complexities and challenges of the figure like a maze until I reach deep enough to find my voice.
In the summer of 2009, I spent a month at the SommerAkademie in Traunkirchen, Austria painting under the direction of Viennese artist Xenia Hausner. Many of these paintings were created painted there.
