My style might best be described as "Expressive Realism". I presently prefer to work with oil on canvas. As most artists will probably tell you, they do art because they must. I definitely feel compelled to create beautiful things and I consider that to be my life's purpose.
Being obsessed with faces and figures, I love to find new and interesting ways to express their beauty. Inspirational ideas for paintings can come from just about anywhere. I am attracted to combining color and iconic images for impact. As an art director I got very used to finding the most efficient way to tell a story with a visual. Painting just allows me to be free to express abstract thoughts in unusual ways. That’s what makes a work highly exceptional to me - taking an idea and making the painting tell the story in a visually arresting manner.
