Paint has presence in my work. As a knife painter, I try to push the boundaries of what the knife can do. In addition to the traditional impasto (thick paint), my paint application can have a more quiet, gentle presence in a painting. As an expressive colorist, I create representational paintings with a focus on color relationships in a painterly style. Weather, the effects of light, and nature all get my creative juices flowing, and I just can’t stop painting – the world holds endless paintable subjects. All my works are done with artist quality oils on archival supports.
