About the Art

I paint and draw perceptual images of ephemeral beauty. I use traditional oil painting methods with contemporary paint and mediums. I paint the beauty and essence of flowers with environmentally friendly “green” water mixable oil paint. I draw fleeting moments of water surfaces and the human form with pastels and charcoal.
