Ashlee on Green Cushion , Acrylic on Canvas, 40x30

The human form has always been the primary focus of my work.
I vividly recall the moment when I experienced my first live model in a Life Drawing class. I had never encountered anything like it. It seemed truly like an epiphany; because from that day I was irresistibly drawn to painting and drawing the figure. I knew, with such a deep, unquestioning certainty, that this was my path.

What I enjoy most about figural work, is the lyrical, expressive feeling of it, the line, the shapes created, the negative space. Somehow, it seems to have almost a musical quality that pleases my soul. It is a way of being in touch with that which is most human about us, the form we present to the world.

I have been working much more abstractly in recent years, in both nudes and other figural pieces. The spectrum of abstraction in art is a broad one, and I feel compelled to explore the figure within that spectrum. It is very satisfying to me as an artist.
