Artist Statement

It has been my desire to paint subjects that everyone can enjoy such as a walk in the park, sitting by a quiet stream or perhaps a portrait you've wanted to have painted.

The mediums I use are oils, acrylics and watercolors. My style would be considered realism although there are times I may lean more toward impressionism to 'loosen up' a painting." I'm constantly looking for that special light effect when choosing new subjects to paint, attempting to capture the contrast, mood and balance of the scene.

My current work has grown out of the experience gained doing commissioned work for many years. Challenged by the vision of others and successfully translating it to canvas has helped to develop my talent.
