    "There is more than one way to paint a painting."

    I find myself saying this to my students at Georgetown University every semester. The approach, technique and style you deploy in your painting really depends on what you are trying to say with your work. Not every artist needs to begin their work in the same fashion.

    I always appreciate the emails and comments I receive from students, artists and those curious enough to write.  This blog post is for those of you that have asked me me questions over the years about my thoughts regarding my work, influences and how I envision my work moving forward. I think this post is best written in a question and answer format because I receive a lot of questions from students writing essays for school or studying my work in college and desiring to know more about me.

    Procession has multiple meanings. The hands and the composition evoke movement while at the same time the figure imbues an air of quiet acceptance. The structure of the figure is in flux. She is not quite there. She is lost in the procession of hands and their rhythmic spiral.
