Inspired by nature and light, my paintings convey a sense of calm, peace and balance in a blend of realism and abstraction. My latest work employs leaves and petals as a "medium within a medium" to evoke images of skies, clouds and weather.
My oil paintings are created in with pure oil paints and a minimum of thinner using a mostly wet-on-wet technique. My canvases and boards are all stretched, gessoed and otherwise prepared by me. Most of my oil paintings are gallery wrapped on deep stretchers and left unframed with neatly finished, painted or raw linen edges. My paintings are all original works, never reproductions of any kind.
