Figurative, Cartoon, Landscape

My new paintings and drawings are in a narrative cartoon/realist style. They often have a dark sense of humor and are semi-autobiographical. I explore traditional roles for women and children, and modernize or subvert them. A few years ago, I also began a series of semi-abstract Tree of Life paintings which I continue to make on a commission basis. And I can't seem to stop myself from painting the occasional Romantic landscape. My current paintings are oil and gold/silver leaf on wood/canvas, and ink/gouache/acrylic on paper.
