The goal is to alter reality just enough to create my own unique scene. Theres a certain intentional distortion and exaggerated movement
in my work, I use perspective to make a path that leads the viewer's eye into the scene...I want my audience to feel as if they could step into my paintings...emotionaly and visually.

Inspiration can

occur anywhere...

COMMISSIONS

Over the years, I have created over 150 original custom artworks for special projects such as murals and commissions. A customized piece can be created in a variety of sizes to best suit your space. If you would like to bring to life that special place seared in your memory or to learn more about commissioning a painting please see below or contact the studio.

Light and shadows are imagined as they would cast acrossthe scene, definitely my favourite part of the process...

I've always painted with texture, the build up of many layers of thick paint adds depth and another dimmension to my art. 

Theres a certain randomness that happens as I build up these layers. This technique helps me exaggerate the perspective and movement in my art.

Subtle or main focus, the small details often help tell the story...
They can be seen in the architectural moulding of a historic building, an ornate lamp post, even in the worn 
cobblestones of an old city sidewalk. 

These are important elements I want to include in my paintings, I feel they give my work character and help the individual piece tell its own story...
