di·lation of imagination

Darkness is the absence of light. In low light, your pupils open up, or dilate, to let in more light. My new series "di·lation of imagination" explores the relationship between darkness and light, and how the mind expands to let light in. In a shadowed space, the less light you have the more it stands out. Light is intensified by darkness.

less is more

I have been experimenting with the minimal amount of dots and lines needed to create an eye in the shadows.

Get the deets

chiaroscuro

Using stark contrasts of lights and darks, my intention is to convey a mysterious, deep emotion in each of my portraits.

This sounds serious

my discovery

The darkness that I thought would be the dominant feature became secondary, while the light became the interest.

When you are searching for the perfect art piece, keep your eyes open and the art will find you.

Change the way you see things and the things you see will change

Layers, layers, layers

I love contrast - bright whites against a dark background, or using vibrant colors that pop.  I also love lines - hard lines with crisp edges that blur into soft shading to show round forms. Through a series of layering, I work to develop a richness in my paintings that create depth and dimension.
