That which lies within us must be recognized and explored. Painting offers a way for me to do that. Expressing the delicate beauty and romance of the world around us is the driving force behind my work. I strive to paint striking images that create a lasting impression and lingering feeling of warmth and peace.
My work is strongly influenced by Sargent. I enjoy the challenges of figurative work, focusing on color and composition rendered spontaneously to achieve romantic images. All works are oil on canvas.
