I am a second generation artist and a retired Classical Dressage trainer. My mother, an art major in college, encouraged my art and was very influential in my training. It has been a lifelong study and continues to be so.
My goal as a traditional painter is to depict the contemporary world in which I am engaged by using the methods of the old masters. My paintings are a combination of careful observation of the world around me and my imagination. From the initial spark of an idea to the first line and on to the final layer, the creation of an oil painting is an intoxicating experience. I absolutely love it. The works I create are built of several layers of paint carefully manipulated resulting in a finished product that is true to real life while retaining the look of a painting. In a world where we are constantly bombarded visually my intention is to provide the viewer with something to take them out of the ordinary or to look at the ordinary in a new and refreshing way.
I live and work in Pasco County Florida where I am an instructor teaching traditional oil painting techniques to intermediate and advanced art students at the Pasco Arts Council. My work has been on exhibition in singular and multiple venues. Currently I have works on exhibit at Ruth Eckerd College in St. Petersburg and in the Pasco County Government Center in Port Richey. Recently my painting “The Gatekeeper” won both best in show and best in category at the Pasco Arts 2012 Art Show. My works hang in numerous private collections in North America and Europe.
