my work is contemporary realism, strongly influenced by advertisement of the MIDCENTURY. I am at once embellishing and MINIMIZing what i see, enhancing certain things, while leaving other things completely out. This allows me to paint with an abstract APPROACH, even though i choose realistic content. My hope is to breathe life into my inanimate subjects...Places and objects of a time past, but still around today.

Although I received a degree in art, I consider myself to be significantly self taught. With each painting I learn something new, which I expect will always be true.

Painting provides me with the invaluable gift of being in the present moment.
