"My representation of the figure has been informed by studio life drawing and by a knowledge of anatomy and psychology gained through careers in surgical and psychological fields. I want the viewer to see what I have seen, to think about the person and their situation rather than let pure representational poses close down possibilities. To this end, the majority of my portraits are not frontal. Gestures, body language.... a moment in time are meant to remind the viewer of some of the subtleties in life. Placing the image in a space defined by color but void of background objects presses the viewer to focus on the person or his/her situation."
