"The task of art is enormous... Art should cause violence to be set aside. And it is only art that can accomplish this." Leo Tolstoy


My paintings project the peacefulness of a variety of easily recognizable subjects, existing serenely in their own immediate space.


I paint in both watercolors and oils, enjoying the energy and flow of the brush or palette knife as it glides over the paper or canvas distributing bright pigments. I find the actual act of painting tranquil and yet stimulating at the same time. Experimentation with various painting styles, canvases, and papers gives me a variety of exciting choices when creating a painting and melding the subject with its individual atmosphere.


Co-op: Interested in joining a co-op.
