Bright colors, interesting brush strokes, uncommon compositions and strong contrast are some of the identifying characteristics found in my work. One of my goals is to say more with a painting than can be said with a photograph. By creating music in a painting, I want to cause a stir of excitement, anticipation or romance that cannot be derived from the subject alone.


To reveal the beauty and drama found in everyday scenes, I paint many different subjects from life. My works are fresh and full of colors that I see that may not be seen by the typical viewer. Although I apply techniques learned from other artists, my work is constantly evolving into a voice that cannot be duplicated.
