I paint to create a new experience for the viewer. I use elements from various genres juxtaposed to achieve new realities, both strong and subtle at once. I have been painting all of my life, alternating between large abstracts in oils, figure studies of mixed media, and an occasional plein air. My work often contains bold layering of paint and texture to achieve dramatic effects of scale and form.
