I’ve been a painter now for about 15 years, but I still learn something new every time I put brush to canvas.I like it that way. It’s been a fascinating activity to pursue. At times frustrating, yet always fulfilling. It’s a constantly simmering, bubbling pot of principles and ideas that takes on new flavors and depth the longer it’s on the stove.
I believe that beauty needs no justification and prefer to find subject matter outside of myself.
I paint with oils and am influenced my representationalism and impressionism. Some of my favorite contemporary artists are, Richard Schmid, Carolyn Anderson, Dan Gerhartz, Morgan Weistling, Luke Frazier, and Clyde Aspevig.
