Why I Tango

I paint what I know, and therefore, when I learned Argentine tango it became a subject for my paintings. I paint from the inside out. The paintings are mostly about social dancing. The milonga, where people go to dance socially, is often where I draw my inspiration.  In my paintings you see the places I go to dance, the people I dance with.

Some paintings include the musicians making the music. Others include food and wine and the people along the side of the dance floor. Most of all, my paintings show this interwoven scene of an evening out dancing. I hope the pleasure comes across to you.
