My work, to date, is entirely oil on canvas and mostly self-taught. The inspiration comes from many sources – such as a photo or a particular scene to which I was attracted. Occasionally, I simply paint without reference to see what will happen. Such is the case with some of my landscapes and all of my abstracts. I enjoy seeing where a piece will go by simply practicing with techniques, colors, textures, and so on. Whether it is a landscape, an abstract, or something in between, I paint as I feel. I may use a photo for reference; however, it is only that. Once I am into a painting, I let it come to me and try not to force an outcome. Painting teaches me a great deal about myself – where I am, where I’m going, what I’m feeling and trying to achieve at the moment.
I am available for commissioned pieces upon request.
