Acrylics - Portraits & Figures

Finger Painting...
I feel, therefore I paint.
I am very active and intimate with my work. You might say I am extremely 'hands on'. In late 2005 I threw away my brushes and began painting exclusively with my fingers...and my heart. My paintings are not planned or composed, I paint purely by feeling.

Each step in my process contributes greatly to the final piece. I begin by adding a light texture to the canvas, still using only my fingers. I then begin filling in the background. I continue to add layers and colors to the background until the figures and forms begin to emerge. I don't force my pieces but rather let them evolve in their own time.

I enhance the light and shadow with more colors and layers until the figures and forms are fully developed. If you look closely, you will find that in most of my works the obvious figure is not the only spirit in the piece.
