I only paint with carbon black acrylic on primed canvas to convey immediate emotional impact in my large and small portraits and abstracts. Dramatic portrayal of depth of character rather than a decorative approach is what I’m after. None of these canvases originate from models or photographs. They are the result of spontaneous inspiration. Film noir has always appealed to me and perhaps influenced this color choice. I want to capture that same sense of intrigue with a glimpse, a gesture that says it all. My experience as a professional model with pose and movement has sharpened my aesthetic eye. Pastels and drawings from 1993-2012 are also presented in this first solo exhibit.
