My objective is to give life and emotion to subject matter that is visually gripping and exciting. The inherent stimulation found only from experimentation and discovery keep me challenged to explore the endless possibilities of painting. The work is a dialog of light and shadow followed by the incorporation of opaque textures and transparent layers. While various subjects come into play, the completely uninhibited way that children approach each moment often sparks the fire that drives me to paint. Each painting involves an exciting struggle between abstraction and reality.
