I paint still life in the classical realist style. I love to paint traditional still lifes and trompe l'oeil. I find inspiration in everyday, nostalgic souvenirs or objects. I love to tell a different story with each new painting I try to paint. My work is influenced by the great works of the Old Masters: Willem Kalf, Jean Baptiste Chardin, William Harnett, John Haberle, Willem Claesz Heda, Rembrandt, Boucher, Bouguerau, Velazquez, Hals, and other greats. Starting at an early age, I found love in drawing and painting. I started drawing when I was seven and painting when I was twenty. I love to see pictures and express myself through pictures... there's so much to see and tell.
