I paint both perceptual and abstract images. Most of my work originates with a landscape of some kind. I work from the actual landscape, photographs, videos, and I even consider still lives a kind of a landscape. I use oil paints for my paintings, and for my drawings I use many materials — charcoal, ink, pastel, gesso, pencil, coffee, white out, acrylic, and others.

I am available to do commissions. A painting from a favorite vacation photograph or other landscape is a wonderful personal momento and can give great pleasure and bring back memories of a place for years to come...
