Solitude, intrigue and passion are emotions that can be expressed both subtly and explicitly. In my paintings, intricate and colorful designs compliment and obscure the faces that are hiding behind them, leaving the viewer to interpret what is missing. These designs aid in focusing upon lingering details, but also entice the imagination with the illusion of a story that needs to be completed.
My subject matter has changed, but my work has continuously used self-made stencils that are reworked in different pictures. The stencils are used either for a single piece or a limited run with the average size of 24x36 inches.
