As an artist, I am constantly searching for something more about myself.  Paint is the medium I have chosen to express this quest, using basic visual elements: color, value, shapes, and texture.

My subjects are ordinary and they usually come from my surroundings: my wife’s coffee maker, my daughters’ toys, her friends, or a picnic bench at the park.  When a subject sparks my interest, I quickly sketch it.  One of these quick drawings later becomes a reference for my paintings.  I prefer using these sketches as a reference because they provide minimal but essential information; therefore, I am forced to imagine, take chances, make mistakes, and hopefully create something unexpected and beautiful.

These paintings are records of my searches and discoveries.  It is my hope that you will view them deeply and imagine your own narratives.
