Materials and Techniques

My Original Oil paintings are inspired by nature. I use palette knives and brushes to convey an interesting surface and design. Creating art that has great color, depth, and mood is my key goal. Nature is my inspiration, but I do not try to copy nature. My work tries to convey an emotion or depict a moment. Generally, I start a painting by looking at the subject in front of me. As the painting progresses, it takes its own form. It is this push and pulls of design and reality that interests me.
