“I am passionate about drawing and depicting my subjects with honesty as well as expressiveness. My goal is to create a fresh perspective to the recognizable world without being predictable or mundane. Being comfortable at rendering in oil paint, I enjoy tackling complex subjects from cityscapes to the figure in the alla prima method of wet on wet. Utilizing a vibrant underpainting technique of complimentary colors, my oil paintings are complex, but not overly worked. As I continue to grow as a representationalist painter, I plan to develop my ability to say more with less.”
