in gentrified graffiti, My recent paintings explore street views and multiple voices of people living in the twenty first
am a realist and a figurative painter, I admire the history and genre paintings of the old masters. My interest in the
formal aspects of painting is what leads me to paint my images in traditional oil paint along with newer alkyd resins.
In some "Urban" and "Pedestrian" series paintings
I have played with notions of reality by inserting a small pigment print into the painted surface creating a micro narrative
and provoking the viewer into questioning what is more real the painting or the photograph?
