Because of my varied interests, I paint a variety of subject matter. I have a series of realistic paintings and also a series I call Shattered Realities. In the latter series I combine sections of warm colors against cool colors and darks against lights to create painted collages of interesting forms. Recently I have started painting in acrylics as well and doing some photography.

I have a degree in Graphic Design and Advertising but devote my time to fine art. I have paintings in collections nationwide and have shown in many solo and group exhibitions.
