About My Work:

I’ve always believed in the power of positive thought and my work is meant to invoke warm, uplifting emotions in these times of war, economic struggles and natural disaster; whether it be the more elegant white-on-white raised floral paintings, the wedding bouquet portraits, the classic car portraits or the exotic, colorful pop art orchids on carbon fiber.

The combination of a high-tech carbon fiber canvas and uv-rated clear-coat make for vibrant
and durable modern art that is ideally suited for outdoor or public art placement. I am facinated with painting something as fragile and organic as a flower on such a high-tech sustainable surface. It is my legacy to the world and I hope you enjoy!
