ABOUT THE ART...

I paint primarily in oil combined with mediums such as cold wax and impasto to enhance the visual movement and texture of the work.
While I enjoy painting the nuances of nature, I paint any subject matter that prompts me to pause and be mindful of what I observe. I strive to share my appreciation for the many aspects of the world around me. I am visually communicating a message to you that says, "Hey, did you see that?" I find this acknowledgment of the world around me serves as an anchor to what is important to me, resulting in a feeling of centeredness.
