Representing my subject honestly and naturally is my goal. I aim for accuracy in drawing capturing essential mood and color.

My landscapes are based on real places and done in plein air with larger works done in the studio using references from observation and sketches. Still life is a mini landscape, one where I control light and objects unlike plein air where these are constantly in motion. Still objects take on an air of mystery and poetry whether rendered in shadowy black and white or full color.

Portraiture is about interpretation. Demeanor, expression and carriage reveal the character of the individual.

My work is constantly evolving as a personal language.
