Artist Statement

I’ve been a photographer and oil painter for about 25 years now. I paint paintings of anything that peaks my interest. I’m not a landscape painter. I’m not a wildlife painter. I’m not a portrait painter. I’m just a painter. I’m inspired by things that are visually interesting, and the light that reveals them. I employ a technique that strives for correctness, but does not apologize for simply being paint on canvas.
