I paint images and impressions from my life. Life passes around me at 100 miles an hour as I travel through the day. It leaves me with colors and shapes that I put on canvas. Sometimes the images are concrete, sometimes they are abstract. But each painting has a little of the motion and color of today. The color will grab your attention first and then the shapes emerge. With an extensive exposure to the entertainment arts, I want my artwork to grab the viewer, keep the viewer involved, and even invite them back to view again. Like a good movie you want to watch over and over, fine art should call you back to look, to think, and to wonder.
