I paint with oils to create expressive, sensitive and colorful paintings imbued with a vibrant, uniform and linear composition by utilizing thick bold brushstrokes and applying many emotional paint layers.

I work in acrylic paint, on canvas. My female series is based on model sketches that I later deconstruct into a bolder, more confident and colorful interpretation of the pose.

I do my best to find unique and off the beaten path scenes throughout the world. I do not over-enhance. Prefer my photos to be as organic as possible. I print on aluminum which makes the details pop!

I use a glazing oil paint technique to create immersive spaces. Storytelling is done through a limited color pallet, hierarchy of light, and atmospheric perspective.
