I work in a variety of media, depicting still life, portraits, figures, and landscapes.  I combine classic precepts and techniques with contemporary methods and materials.  Composition, color, and abstract considerations are integral.  I seek the essential character, personality, and vitality of my subjects.  Living beings and other elements in our world are ephemeral.  My artwork preserves and interprets transient moments for now and future. In our overly connected and distracted era this is especially important.  My work, and the process of creating my work, invites people to stop, look, and respond.
