1“Although painting from life means the working method of direct observation,the term has a poetic meaning for me as it has come to describe my subject matter.

I keep circling back to the same imagery I have been attracted to since I was a teenager.

This is the stuff I stumble upon in the course of my daily business.

Such imagery usually contains the germ of narrative as well as pictorial drama that can become the organizing principal of a painting. I paint from direct observation, on location, as well as from my own photographs, which opens up possibilities of working with fleeting sights.”
