I am a contemporary realist. As a professional illustrator, I sometimes carry the precision of illustration into my fine art. I enjoy exploring exciting ranges of color, texture and light. I like to present common objects such as food, still lifes, and animals in unusual and interesting ways. Each stoke is applied with the spirit of the subject matter in mind. Inspiration comes from the beauty and simplicity found in nature or things we encounter everyday, that can be overlooked in our hurried lives.
