"In a sense I'm glad that I've never learned to paint" (Vincent Van Gogh)  I am self taught and paint what is close.  Primarily I am interested in the figure and portraiture.  I do not aim to capture an exact likeness but rather something deeper through simplification of form and color.  I seek truth and beauty.  My work is often inspired by French Fauvism and German Expressionism.
