Welcome...
Ever since childhood I have been inspired to create art. Over 22 years ago I made the decision to quit my 'day job' and pursue my 'passion' which was to become a full time painter. At 34, leaving behind a secure life in Texas, I jumped into the unknown: the south of France. Feeling somewhat panic-stricken and some would say 'delusional,' I also felt that if I did not do it then, I would regret it for the rest of my life. Luckily I have had great support, understanding and encouragement from my wife and children, and so far, we have pulled it off.

My work is inspired by a need to find order and meaning in this beautiful disorder we call life. I choose imagery that makes me feel centered and calm, changing from very technique-oriented, representational work to more meditative abstract painting because the variety keeps both fresh. What remains consistent in all my work though is the light. It represents energy, spirit and forces we do not see but feel are there all the same: emotions, sounds, thoughts, gravity, vibrations.

The illusion of spatial dimension and light is achieved through a technique involving multiple layers of transparent oil paint and alkyd resin. Starting with blurry images I refine detail and contrast with each pass and often 'erase' some of the image with a thin wash of paint and go back to refining the details until the right balance is achieved.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me using the information below.
