Artist Statement

I studied in Spain when I was in college and was fascinated by the flamenco dancers. Their bodies, their grace, their style--all evoke power and beauty in one dance. Although I couldn't dance like they did, I chose to paint one of the from memory last year. It was so dazzling that I tried to capture the movement and glitter. I used the oil and canvas because it was traditional perfect for showing the flow of the dancer's movement, hopefully capturing it forever.
