“Basking in the Light” Acrylic, 30″ x 40″

 

My paintings are characterized with contemporary and conceptual ideas that are enhanced by the skill at rendering lifelike figures with a sharp eye for manipulating and abstracting proportion and scale. As an artist, I believe that realistic creatures and objects deserve to be transformed into a uniquely expressive form, while rejuvenating the eye of the viewer with fresh color.

“Prison of Souls” Acrylic, 28″ x 54″

 

Although a well-trained painter who has learned the anatomy of objects, I have built up the courage to break the rules to dissect form into a multitude of small facets. This technique reflects a love for motifs and nature, through the vibrant colors smeared on a canvas.
