The body is a landscape constantly in motion. Like tectonic plates shifting our skin, bones and beings are always on the move. I aim to capture a moment of that transition, be it painful or joyful. I seek to look into my own eyes when I work on self-portraiture and examine just what is underneath it all, literally. The layers of paint really are like skin...they are organic and never straight...always arcing, always softening, always pushing ahead or receding back. It is those continually fluctuating moments that intrigue me the most and beckon to be caught on canvas...
