ARTIST STATEMENT This work is a celebration of people and faces that move me and who I feel the desire to explore in color and form. Paintings of people and most definitely of women are an integral part of my psyche. I have always drawn people from early on and carried a sketchbook with me everywhere. It was my identity. The subways in Philadelphia where I grew up were great for sketching if one was quick. I started life drawing at sixteen and working as a portrait artist – as fascinated then by the play of light and color reflected on the subjects as today.This exhibition honors the uniqueness and strength that inhabits women of different backgrounds and ages. Capturing these qualities has been a powerful motivation in my drawings and paintings. I relish being able to take my time and fully explore each subject while attempting to capture the essence of that person. I choose subjects that interest me and with whom I feel a palpable connection; these women touch me personally.As my work is driven by a visceral connection to my subjects and a desire to evoke an emotional response in the viewer, my hope is that this exhibition will magnify the strength of the human spirit revealed in all of my subjects.
