My vision is macabre, eerie with a sense of uncertainty, and quiet dread—the wear and tear of life as mirrored by a facial expression. These empathetic images are an offering of transposition, a substitution for the real horrors of the distressed. I consider my paintings realist in that they project an empathetic response to the trials of contemporary living, reliant on a type of human connection that exists in a silent inaudible understanding beyond gender, culture, religion, and language. \"
