Narrative figure painting tells a story, a narrative for the viewer to ponder over. I love portraying women experiencing emotional connections in the everyday moments that make up our lives. The compositions and color are carefully designed to evoke curiosity and shared human connections. My paintings are mostly set in a time before technology ruled every interaction. I often reference nostalgia and history, drawing from the 20th century before technology affected every interaction.
I have been painting landscape paintings in oil throughout my career. It's such a joy to capture the energy and beauty of nature's bounty.
Realistic oil painted portrait paintings are very personal. They capture the sitter's personality, likeness, and world they live in. Portraits are a forever memory and legacy for future generations of who you are.
