Familiar objects possess inherent beauty. I attempt to expose that beauty through realistic and sometimes surreal renderings in oils.
My goal is to capture--through color and lighting--the form, nuances, and even the flaws of each subject. There is elegance and wonder in the mundane. I want viewers to take a moment to pause and relate the piece to their personal experience. In essence, I try to make the ordinary extraordinary.
