historical


For some years now,
I have been reflecting and painting
a combination of classical and 18th century subjects,
using reenactors and historical interpretors
as reference and model.

As these paintings came into being,
I noticed that while each new person
viewed these works,
a story emerged.
The stories and interpretations
vary as greatly as the individuals relating them.
There is no limit to the interpretation
of an artwork-
feel free to let your imagination take you on a journey.
