About the artist

I consider myself a traditional realist painter. I’m inspired by finding the beauty in subtle, intimate scenes all around me. I work with oil paint because I find it the most versatile and suitable medium. My brushes and knives allow me a multitude of ways to describe and indicate an impression of my subject.

Primarily working en plein air, I capture impressions of the landscape around me. In working from life I’m constantly challenged by the passage of time but I feel that this is what gives my artwork its own unique voice. My paintings are a product of direct observation and experience of the landscape.

I may pass what appears to be a mundane scene everyday but for a small window of time, when the light is right, it transforms into something extraordinary, and that’s what I’m always looking for and trying to capture.
