Artist Statement: 

The figure in itself is art. My mixed medium pieces, (oil pastel, acrylics and charcoal) show a more “behind the scenes” reposed look at dancers and an impressionist style to live model poses. I teach art in many venues, especially figure workshops, training my students to look beyond what they see and to utilize surrounding color in juxtapositioning. Loose line techniques and bold contours harness vivid tones that allow me to state that my figures are “not just another nude”.
