My subject matter is drawn from my daily life - the people and the situations that I encounter. This is where I find my inspiration. I am drawn to how my subjects look, feel and express themselves, and how I have come to know them.

Painting the portrait of one person has often led to a series of portraits of others within the same milieu. It is the experience of finding myself with others that I had never imagined knowing, that soon grows to the recognition that here is an opportunity to capture my experience.
