Artist Bio

I call myself a colorist. Color is the life of my paintings. The workflows between watercolor, encaustic/coldwax and acrylics touching on many temperaments. The one thing they all have in common is the vitality of color.

I use to mainly produce Color Field and Abstract Expressionist works. Now I concentrate on large contemporary tree paintings in watercolor. The painting surface embraces rhythmic brush strokes, rich color, that build a contemporary landscape.
