As a painter I feel it is my job to give the viewer a chance, or second look
at an unobserved , or overlooked scene that one would not notice at first
These glimpses of nature are often seen in a flash of light and shadow, out
of the corner of your eye. They are the subjects that fascinate me most.
Sometimes there for just a fleeting moment these scenes are jewels to be
captured and the challenge is to keep the brilliance intact on canvas or
I want my paintings to slow the viewer down to a place where they can
contemplate the beauty and divine joy of the commonplace everywhere.
Using oil paint, I try and capture what my eye sees and my heart feels of
the amazing beauty that surrounds me.
Another aspect of my painting is a search for truth and beauty in my art,
because I believe that truth and beauty reflect the Creators heart. Art is
more than a vocation , for some I believe it is a calling. By combining
imagination, and faith , beautiful art is created that reminds us of His
perfection and timelesness. In art we are given a harbinger of eternity.
