My art is simple contemporary realism, with an impressionistic flair.

I am an oil painter, working from the academic tradition of painting from life. For me, I am able to see deeper, to understand the three dimensional form and the effect that light has on it. I feel the essence of the subject is more evident. It has atmosphere and energy that comes through, therefore, the viewer is compelled to stay and gaze at it for a while.
I focus on contrast in my paintings. It’s exciting and the energy is high. However, over the years I have learned to slow down and take more time to look, before mark making with a brush. I solution orient myself before taking action with brush strokes and by manipulating paint to emphasize only what is necessary.

I seek simple solutions, while ‘plein’ air painting (out doors). It is demanding and time pressed. I often begin in the field and return to the studio to complete the work. I am familiar with taking commissions to paint what you so desire, and I will engage with you on any ideas and concepts you may have for a painting. My pieces have been helpful and treasured by many.
