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.
