About My Work:

Altthough I most often work in watercolor, I also work pen and ink, and acrylic.

My primary style is Hyperrealism.  My subject matter includes Still Life, Figurative, Landscape and Wildlife, but my main focus is Still Life.

I often paint fruit, toys and other subjects at many times their actual size. I paint each item with passion, telling its story as accurately as I can.


My paintings are known for intense, joyful colors; my drawings for eye-catching detail.  And all media for a strong sense of depth and realism.
