"There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual- become clairvoyant. We reach then into reality. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness, such are the moments of our greatest wisdom."
                                                            Robert Henri

Many of my paintings and drawings express solitary narratives in uneventful domestic settings. My work derives from my responses to evanescent moments in life. In the same tradition as Vermeer, Hopper,Sargent and Hammershøi, I strive to convey expressive content of love, isolation and introspection within a contemporaneous context.
