Life is good... Art is my obsession and livelihood, working as a professional artist since 1976.
After 19 years in graphic arts, I shifted gears in 1995 to exclusively fine art,
focusing on large murals and commissioned canvas paintings plein air and in the studio.
Since that time I have finished hundreds of art pieces for commercial and residential locations
to include: cathedrals, hospitals, living centers, schools, museums, restaurants, sport facilities and
government buildings as well as private homes. I work with interior designers or directly with the client.
Approximately 90% of my work is commissioned. Working in a variety of mediums and various
subject matter allows flexibility to accommodate client requests and incorporate my personal creative twist.

“Celebrating life… people, animals and nature. Finding what is overlooked.”
My style is realism with a touch of impressionism,
keeping my paintings accurate, fresh and interesting.
“Painting from life and animals are my favorites.”
My goal is to capture the essence of my subject, whether it be the how the sunlight hits or expressive eyes.
Through Plein air (open air painting) I have developed greater observation and decision skills.
“There is no better teacher than direct observation of nature itself, getting to know your subject.”
Inspiration comes easily, with persistence and the desire to learn,
I always have a challenge to look forward to.
