I am fascinated by light, shadow, reflection, and the interplay of colors between objects and reflections in glass. I love using color straight from the tube and the feel of the paint. My medium of choice is oil on canvas, usually with an underpainting of acrylic. Using the camera as a supplement to my sketchbook, I create compositions that suggest a story narrative. The paintings have a traditional feel, with a touch of the contemporary. Subject matter is selected based on textures, shapes, reflections and color harmony to develop compositions that present everyday objects in a new way.
