A painting style is very personal and often as unique and recognizable as one's face. The paintings I am drawn to and enjoy most are ones that evoke an emotional response in me. Color, subject matter, composition, exciting brushwork, beautiful paint and texture can combine for a unique artistic experience for both the painter and the viewer. 

I paint a wide range of subjects from figurative, to landscape, to the abstract. My goal and personal challenge in this season of painting is not to accomplish detailed representational depictions. Utilizing good basic painting skills, I attempt to focus equally on the intuitive, a subtle combination of suggestion and perhaps nostalgia.

I want to create paintings that are not boring, paintings that have more emotions and little surprises, that can be enjoyed over and over again.
