Painting is my primary medium. The development of an image subject/concept and the formal elements of the work, light, color, texture and composition are inseparable.
Women in Hats – Imaginary women of various ages who wear hats as descriptive identifiers.
Mortal Sin/Mitigating Virtue – These paintings depict the prevailing presence of sins and possibility of virtue, as defined by Christian theology. I have used color and symbols based on tradition, and have employed androgynous figures to emphasize the universality of sin and virtue.
Mythic Women Juxtaposed – In any era certain women attain mythic proportions. These diptychs explore the relationship between women of Greek mythology and those of our contemporary time.
Nine Muses – These paintings were commissioned for the Bingham Poetry Room in the Ekstrom library at University of Louisville.
