The female nude is probably the most painted subject in western art.

For me painting the female nude is a way to explore movement, grace, sensuality, and a release of the human female body as an empowered and exquisite entity.

I am influenced by other art mediums (frescoes, statues), and inspired by artists such as Romare Bearden and Honoré Fragonard, who loved color as I do.  Painting the female nude allows me the freedom to explore new ways of expressing myself as an artist.
