Throughout my career as a painter I have consistently experimented with ideas, creating series of paintings that span over the years, and in some cases, decades. From my dozens of portraits inspired by obituary photographs selected from newspapers to the narrative Lifeboat series, I demonstrate the ability to work through aspects of an idea, and then pick up on it again and rework it. The original idea then becomes an ongoing cycle of a painting series.  Each series is explored, set aside and explored and worked again. My commitment is to this creative process: trying to achieve a perfection in my art that inherently must be imperfect to reach its gestalt.
