My work is primarily concerned with the effects of sunlight and shadow. To my eyes, the effects of sunlight on an
object can transform even the most mundane subject matter into a thing of great beauty. I especially enjoy
painting people. I find portraying people to be a challenging, complex and fascinating undertaking, during which
my goal is to go beyond a likeness or accuracy and convey something of the spirit and character of the person,
hopefully breathing life into the 2 dimensional canvas. I also enjoy painting still lifes, florals, animals and
landscapes. I consider myself an impressionistic realist. My goal is to create a translation of what I'm seeing into
paint, hopefully offering the viewer the opportunity to experience the subject in a new and interesting way.
Portraying the beauty found in God's world is a sufficient challenge to keep me constantly eager to reach for my
paint brush.
