As a contemporary representational impressionist, I paint a variety of subjects. Common subjects that invite the viewer to reflect on their own life journey and appreciate the everyday beauty found along the way.

You know that feeling you get when you smell the salty air that transports you to glorious times spent at the beach? Or perhaps the familiar sights along roads travelled hundreds of times, those sights that define a certain place as home? Or maybe it’s the heart swell you experience as your fingers run through the fur of a loyal and much-loved pet? These are the feelings, all present for the viewer to experience as they explore my use of subject, color, light and brushwork.
