I work on canvas and wood panels prepped with acrylic gesso. I apply layers of oil paint, modified with liquid alkyd medium, with various brushes and pallet knives.
With long shutter speeds and dusk lighting the artist captures urban photos from around the world and returns home to interpret them in the studio with these large scale palette knife oils on canvas.

Much of my work is plein air in pastel or oil, inspired from Chicago and destinations around the world. As a Master Pastelist, I teach across the US and in Europe and offer pastel products and videos.

Rich combinations of bold and layered oil paints on canvas with unusual surface texture, using a variety of unconventional techniques in addition to brushwork.
Small outdoor paintings are most often plein air. The largest paintings are done in the studio from my own source material. I use between 12 to 16 colors on the palette. I always paint, a la prima.
Oil painting which starts with a black primed surface using an impressionistic palette to complete the work. The resulting fragmented images of natural settings are a balance of realism and abstraction.
I work with oil paint but I keep experimenting with different textures and materials as well. I choose to paint human body for simple reason: it’s a demanding subject. It requires constant learning.
