Whether working in oils or acrylics, my interest and primary focus is the human face and form. I become caught up in the configuration and expression of a face, an attitude of body language, and significant attire – seeking the unique human image to describe in my painting. A favored subject for some years has been the indigenous women and children I have encountered in my travels to South and Central America, Copper Canyon and the Arctic of Alaska.
