Thanks for coming to my website.
Each of us comes with individual likes and dislikes: food, politics, reading material, sports, music, movies and paintings. My motive in painting is not to convey personal angst or hidden messages. I recognize my works may not set the art world on fire or blaze new and uncharted creative paths, however, like a siren’s call, certain images during my life’s journey speak to me to paint them. I hope they speak to you, too.
I have experimented with oil painting, over these few years, on canvas, paper, and metal before landing on my media of choice - Luan wood veneer. Luan is a wonderful smooth surface that also provides interesting variation and texture. This foundation imbues my detailed and colorful works with a wholly unique look. I love how the wood grain interplays with the paint and gives an extra dimension to the pieces.
My process involves: sanding, prepping, sealing, and staining the surface, then layering 3 to 4 thin coats of color and finally sealing the surface with a finish.
If you would to like to acquire prints of my pieces, please contact me. Again, thank you.
