I love portraying figurative situations. In one series, dancers
move somewhere between reality and cartoon. They're ungrounded, but who isn't these days? I try to use watercolor in a new
manner to invoke the feeling of action. I want the viewer to be drawn into the dance and have fun! I go hear lots of live
music, and sometimes I sketch the dancers who swing to it.
My California beach series kicked off a humorous study of people. A number
of these I call "beach noir" as they are people wandering around in the dark. I followed up with a more general series, including
studies of people on escalators. I also have a group of ceramic "audiences" that hang on the wall. If you want your fifteen
minutes of fame, my audiences will oblige you.
