I use self-portraiture, figuration, and narrative to explore issues of personal psychology, identity, and culture. My projects usually consist of a series of paintings that unveil different aspects of a theme. Hefty tomes have been written about the themes that interest me, but I have found that visual imagery often leads to insights that are not so easily captured in words.
