My subjects are almost always women, modern yet with classical overtones: a modern Venus not rising from the sea but dominating it.

In addition to the strong dynamism of their body’s movement, I am drawn to the abstraction created by the placement of figures against the waves within the picture plane. This brings about a conflict, which I continue to work through by breaking up the space and permitting abstract shapes to become part of the piece.

My most recent inspiration comes from images of surfers carrying their surfboards overhead on the beach, which resemble the poses of Caryatids.
