In our world, on the surface, we go about our daily lives breathing, thinking, sleeping, constantly moving, body
mass fluctuating bigger, smaller, hair growing, eyes blinking. A never ending pattern of movement and growth.

Every action whether conscious or unconscious is dictated by an emotion or desire. So much of what we do is
hidden from the naked eye. When time is slowed down a different world and all of it's details emerges. A truer self,
intentions, motivations and desires becomes more apparent. Subtle nuances become main events. A casual glance or
aversion of one's eyes, for a fraction of a second, turns into a profound gesture suspended in time and brought forth
to the consciously aware world.

With my paintings I am attempting to show my subjects' inner intentions, emotions, and motivations. The paintings
have an emotional dialogue with the painted subject and viewer stripped of the conscious and unconscious facades.
