The figures and portraits are depicted in a classical representational style using old master techniques to allow the viewer to be present with and share an intimacy with the model as they are. The backgrounds are textured abstractions to create a visual and emotional juxtaposition in contrast to the figure. Text and graphic elements are interwoven from music, literature and personal notes representing both the artist and model’s experience.

Aira: of the wind
An invisible breath moves my world. Outside my studio window the clouds move across the sky, my garden dances to a mysterious rhythm, and the water surface on the bird bath ripples.
The Aira series, created with oil stick scribbles like a gesture drawing, captures fleeting impressions of my continuing fascination with mystery, movement, energy, and light.
