In my painting I like  to portray the beauty and interest I find in everyday life and ordinary people.  My earlier training and career as a Medical Illustrator involved detail, accuracy and knowledge of human anatomy.  It taught me to really see, not just look.  Some of my painting and drawing techniques derive from my Medical Illustration background.

I notice subtleties and delight in painting them.  Shadows, light, fine detail, imperfections that make up a person give that individual character.  The way wrinkles lie on a dress or on a face excites me.  I enjoy  capturing  the play of light reflected on figures or objects.  To me a stray wisp of hair, a smudge on a dress, or a puddle in a road is more interesting than a look of perfection; beauty does not equate with perfection.

When I travel, I look for people or scenes that interest me.  I delight in capturing an instant in time and dwelling on a subject.  For one moment in time a person or scene is depicted clearly.
