So one day, on the ride home from work, I pulled into the local art supply house and bought canvas, palette knives, and an assortment of oil paints. I arrived home, set up, and began.

About fifteen years ago I began collecting fine art. Everything from Icart to Walter Baum. I’m influenced by The Bucks County Pennsylvania school of impressionism. I fell in love with early American folk art and began to collect and sell art and antiques.
Most of my paintings are done with palette knife, unless otherwise stated. The paint is thick and heavy, with a raw, fresh feel. I paint “wet on wet” and my subjects come from influences and imagination. Only premium supplies, all sides are painted, and triple varnished for durability.

I currently live in south west Florida, in the Sanibel-Captiva area.
