My paintings mingle classical and contemporary signs and symbols, as well as the juxtaposition of certain figures and still life elements to express the themes of power relationships; in particular, the presence and absence of people throughout our lives and the indelible impressions that presence or absence creates. How humanity is revealed through vulnerability. Sometimes this is completely illogical, such as when we let those long gone affect us to the point of distraction. When we let people, or even abstract concepts, have power over us - we reveal our humanity.
