My work can best be described as Neo-Realism, the intimate study of Nature, deliberate objective transposition, good craftsmanship, and a love of the medium. A collaboration of the artist and nature, resulting in a strong, individual, and interesting interpretation of Life.
My current mediums include pencil, wash, acrylic and oil.
