I work primarily in oil paints on canvas, linen, and panels. on imagery that is 'Figure' centric and often includes implied narrative. I often refer to it as Brushy Realism, or Chunky Realism.

“ I choose subjects as jumping off points, as vehicles to explore what I am feeling. Responses and perceptions are fleeting, so I choose loose, abbreviative marks to express that.”
“ My aim has always been to make work which is compelling in its beauty, or at least intriguing in the way that a piece of music can be.”
