My portfolio is comprised of figurative oil paintings and drawings from photos that I take or that are submitted to me. As a means of organizing my thoughts and finding direction, I work through thematic projects. One of the several that I am currently developing is "The Emoji Project." I am interested in the psychological effects of technology on our ability to connect with each other. This project features a series of self portraits of myself mimicking the emojis on the smartphone keyboard and has moved quickly in several directions. One such path is toward a friend who is married to a former NFL player who suffers from dementia. I felt pulled again toward a friend and liver transplant surgeon whose hands give new life to sick patients. This project is broad but I believe it is current. Parallel to The Emoji Project, I am making a series of drawings from photos I take of amusement park visitors. This group will grow into a series of paintings if I can find the financial support. With each piece, I do my best to observe immediate humanity at it's best and worst and be inspired with empathy and creativity.
