I am enchanted by skin. The skin of trials, tribulations, joy, life! When feelings or emotions are visible through expressions, gestures, or body language, I am mesmerized. I thrive from catching those glimpses of pure divinity. All too often it seems the unique expression of each individual is hidden, overlooked and labeled; both quickly dismissed and unexplored. I seek to absorb the essence of those willing to share it and translate that beauty in my art. Working in oils, I hope to communicate my experience with each individual who has left me captivated by their story, changed by their courage and delighted by their skin.
