About

My work is a visual interpretation of life in its many forms whether it is human, animal, insect or flora.  I work quickly to capture a sense of spontanaiety while using colorful, passionate and deliberate marks.  Inspiration comes unexpectedly through a chance encounter or by trying to work through life issues, problems or celebrations.   I feel work that comes easily, seemingly without effort, comes from a source greater than myself. Work that meets resistance or difficulty forces me to work through problems on paper using sketches and/or studies before applying them to a more permanent support. 


I am consistently inspired by Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Franz Kline, Richard Diebenkorn and Edgar Degas to name a few.  I hope my work inspires others to discover their own creativity and helps them see the world as the colorful creation it is.
