My subjects are typically not grand, they are you and me – a little awkward in their common work-a-day holiness. They are often not “getting it”, or perhaps getting it wrong. They are misunderstood, like you and I are misunderstood, but loved and lovely too. They are a little heavy footed in their dancing, a little disheveled in their useful and inscrutable activities, a little disoriented in their best of intentions. The subjects in my paintings are metaphorical and mythological autobiography and when it is working, they are you too.

Print of an original oil painting Climbing Mother by contemporary figurative artist Brian Kershisnik. A mother holds her baby tight while another climbs a ladder leaned against her back against a blue and green tiled backdrop with angel in each top corner. Quick shop
