I am not a literalist. I want to paint what I feel, not just what I see.
Through art we attempt to inhabit a place, a moment. Oil on canvas is only
color and shape but it has an amazing power to transport us, to help us
capture the essence the colors, the forms, the pure joy of just being there.
My paintings are vivid, full of life and light, because I use color and
contrast to express my feelings to create an impression to evoke a
response, not merely to reproduce a scene. My goal is to entice you to
share my excitement about the beauty of these special places.

of color, his work continues to gain popularity with collectors and art
