Lush color and a dynamic composition are tools I use to create paintings that are visually compelling, and confer a strong sense of motion and of emotion. For me, art is about passion and feeling, rather than an exact transcription of reality into a two-dimensional form. I tend to paint loosely, with attention to overall effect, rather than strict adherence to realism and specific detail. Rather than painting exactly what I see, I seek to retain and even amplify the essential nature of my subject material.

My paintings tend to reflect my own interests and affections. The rural landscape in which I live often influences and inspires my painting, as does my own involvement in farming and gardening. My children and members of my family and friends are also frequent subjects. Rather than strangers or subjects with which I have no connection, I prefer to paint what I often see and those people I care about most.

If you like one of my paintings, you can also request a print. I can provide most sizes at a very reasonable price.
