Drawn to fantasy and the hyper-real, searching for beauty; painting girls in ‘Sweet Lolita’ clothing, fascinated by their intricacy and layering of materials. There is a display of attractiveness that is classic and non gratuitous something that is more lustful than revealing more skin. There is much said in the staring eyes of a character as if thoughts are sent telepathically.
These paintings are a photograph from the minds eye with filters that are subject to emotion and environment. The resulting image is a distorted view of an amalgamated portrait of the subject and myself.
