I paint in oils and acrylics, and draw constantly, in pencil, pen, charcoal, chalk, anything. I aim for realism that borders on what some might call impressionism. I enjoy still life, portraiture and landscapes. I used to work on commissions regularly but have lately found that I can better express myself, 100%, in a work that no one else has had a direct influence on except as it relates to my impressions. The interactions with the world portrayed in these images are mine.
